From the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy...

The Atlantic White Shark Conservancy responded to a third thresher shark this afternoon in Brewster near Cape Cod Sea Camps. Also a male at around 14ft in length, this shark was too frozen to attempt a necropsy. We hauled the shark off the beach and it is currently thawing at NOAA Fisheries Service to be dissected later. A true sharkcicle!

We'd like to thank the generous people who have donated equipment to our shark response kit. Responding to sharks on the beach is difficult but always rewarding, and having the right tools makes the job safer for the sharks and us. You can view items we still need, here: http://gooddler.com/Wishlist/10192

Thanks also to Cape Cod Sea Camps for giving us closer access to the shark via their center!
