Close up of white shark

From November 12th – 17th, Francesco Ferretti and his team attended the White Shark Global conference in Port Lincoln, Australia. The international scientific conference provided an in-person forum for the white shark community to meet, share ideas, update information, and report on the progress of recent scientific studies. Attended by 170 delegates, Francesco and his team presented the latest updates from the White Shark Chase, an unprecedented initiative to find and track the last white sharks in the Mediterranean Sea. The research, which is part of a Yachts For Science initiative project, was enthusiastically received, with students, colleagues, and other delegates expressing a strong desire to engage in collaborative work and partnership to contribute to the understanding and conservation efforts to prevent the extinction of the Mediterranean white shark population.
