Shark Tales: Helping OCEARCH Save Sharks With Data Storytelling
07/25/2019 by Jaime D’Agord Data Communication, Modernization - Analytics
In this webinar, the Zencos data storytelling team works with OCEARCH founder Chris Fischer to create a data story that can help save the great white shark. These hunters have now become the hunted, with nearly 11,000 sharks killed per hour. But not everyone thinks sharks deserve our protection.
This is the challenge facing nonprofit OCEARCH. The mission of OCEARCH is to help scientists collect previously unattainable data in the ocean to help accelerate the ocean’s return to balance and abundance. Part of that mission includes tagging sharks for satellite tracking, which yields a better understanding of the great white’s life cycle.
