Sable, the 76th Great White Shark to be tagged in the wild, is a real traveler. Sable was tagged on Sept. 13, 2021, around Ironbound Island, Nova Scotia. The very first ping on Sable came from the Cabot Strait, west of the coast of Newfoundland.

From there, Sable has traveled down the east coast of the U.S.A. to Key West. After a complete circle through the eastern half of the Gulf of Mexico, Sable once again visited the Keys. Sable pinged on March 31, 2022, just southwest of Cape Sable, located in the Gulf, west of the Everglades. I think that it is very nice to think of Sable visiting Cape Sable. Quite a coincidence.

Ocearch is the global non-profit organization conducting unprecedented research on our ocean’s giants. Scientists affiliated with this organization collect previously unattainable data in the ocean. Their mission is to accelerate the ocean’s return to balance and abundance through fearless innovations in critical scientific research, education, outreach and policy. They use unique collaborations of individuals and organizations within the U.S.A. and from abroad.  

Ocearch has one ship, 200 scientists and has tagged 431 animals in 43 completed expeditions. I would highly recommend spending some time on its website. It is very interesting and eye-opening. You can also contribute if you feel this is something worth supporting with your hard-earned dollars.

 

God bless you all, RHM.
