Expedition White Shark for iPad - Welcome to Expedition White Shark, the world's first app designed to track adult white sharks in real time! To make this possible, scientists at the Marine Conservation Science Institute (MCSI) attached custom satellite tags to the dorsal fin of adult Great White Sharks, allowing us to follow their movements from satellites orbiting the earth. Expedition White Shark allows you to receive real-time Great White Shark tracking data at the same time as the research scientists. Positions for the tagged sharks can only be calculated when a shark is at the surface with its dorsal fin out of the water for several minutes; since sharks are not always finning we receive intermittent position data from our sharks, but each signal beamed to us from space adds to our growing knowledge of the life history of this species. Since you are getting our data in real time you will notice that the satellites sometimes make mistakes, placing the shark far from its actual location; we correct these errors later, when we analyze the data. The MCSI satellite tagging of Great White Sharks leads to many important new findings regarding white shark biology, and each day brings promise of a new discovery that you can make with us!
Short video clips within the app demonstrate how we safely capture, tag and release of these large charismatic creatures, while also presenting new insight into the life history and conservation of the species. Explore the detailed histories of individual Great White Sharks by visiting the Meet Our Sharks portion of Expedition White Shark. The Expedition White Shark game is meant to impart interesting white shark life history facts to those who dare to meet the challenges faced by a baby white shark as it grows through the juvenile and sub-adult phase, eventually migrating to Guadalupe Island and the distant Shared Offshore Foraging Area (SOFA). White shark attacks on humans are rare, but they can occur; Expedition White Shark allows you to explore all white shark attacks that have occurred along the Pacific Coast of the United States. Zoom in to the coast and you will see red fins appear; if you click on an individual fin, you will learn the basic details of the event. The migratory behavior of this species creates a seasonal pattern of shark attacks and you can decrease your risk of a white shark encounter if you know when and where they may occur.
