... as they head out on our first open ocean adventure: Cocos, an island in the Eastern Tropical Pacific. It’s a hotspot of activity for marine life, making it the ideal location to study the migration patterns of sharks. With Migra Mar scientists and Conservation International, we’re trying find out: How can we ensure the survival of migratory species?

Marine Migration

How can we ensure the survival of migratory species?

What's it all about?

Join youth host Sergio and lead scientist Dr. Boris Worm as they head
out on our first open ocean adventure to Cocos Island, in the Eastern
Tropical Pacific. Scalloped hammerhead sharks have been decimated in
this region because their large schools are easy targets for fishers.
Although the islands in the region are all protected, the waters between
these islands are not. With MigraMar scientists and Conservation
International, we’re investigating critical habitats and pathways to
find out: How can we ensure the survival of migratory species?
