Shark Ecology Australia (SEA)
Shark Ecology Australia (SEA) specialises in shark research from rivers to the ocean with the aim to understand shark behaviour for management, conservation and education. Queensland is home to many species of sharks inhabiting rivers to the ocean. As human populations and water activities grow, the study of shark behaviour and habitat use is key to understand how people and sharks interact and can mutually co-exist. SEA utilises many tracking technologies to research shark movement including satellite and acoustic tagging as well as advanced biologging tags which give fine-scale behavioural data.
South East Queensland is home to multiple shark species including the endangered Hammerhead and White sharks, Tiger, Bull and many other large species. SEA is regularly involved in community science outreach programs collaborating with National Science Week, Griffith University's Science on the GO!, Inspiring Australia and many more. SEA has also participated in international shark documentaries including National Geographic and Discovery, as well as local educational programs.
