How­ever, com­pli­ance and reg­u­la­tion are chal­leng­ing, as oceanic whitetips of­ten range across the high seas, be­yond na­tional bound­aries. Given cur­rent de­clines, we ur­gently need more data to bet­ter pro­tect the species.

David Cur­nick is a re­search fel­low at the Zoo­log­i­cal So­ci­ety of London’s In­sti­tute of Zool­ogy, in­ves­ti­gat­ing the be­hav­iour pat­terns of sharks and tuna.
