Hi everyone:


Sharks are threatened by our fishing, pollution and destruction of habitat world wide.  Thanks however to Ocearch, top shark scientists from around the world are now together off the coast of Nova Scotia searching for white sharks to learn more about them in order to help protect a species that has been on earth for over 400 million years. 


Thank you Ocearch for talking to 30 I.P.Y.N.C campers and their families about your mission to save white sharks in an enthusiastic and informative way.
