Thresher Shark

The primary reason for me choosing the Philippines is because it is home to a well established shark research laboratory, with an excellent reputation the – Thresher Shark Research and Conservation Project (TSRCP), based on Malapascua Island, off the North East tip of Cebu.

I shall be working at the TSRCP for 2 months. The TSRCP’s mission statement is as follows:

To promote and disseminate shark research, education and conservation to a broad local, regional and international public and scientific outreach”.

A statement that I fully endorse and follow when conducting my own shark research.
