Shark Fact Friday #7, Video Edition: Bimini Philopatry

Hi shark lovers!

Last week I was in Bimini, Bahamas helping out with a sharky PSA that’s going to come out in July. While I was there I took some footage to use for a video edition of Shark Fact Friday!

You know how sea turtles return to the same nesting beaches every year? Well, did you know that there are many species of shark that do the same thing?? It’s called philopatry and Bimini is the perfect place to study this event since there are several shark nurseries on the island.
