Ryan Johnson, a marine explorer and wildlife documentary filmmaker for National Geographic channel, will deliver a compelling presentation on the research he has conducted in South Africa and around the world on great white sharks. His research includes a satellite telemetry project launched in 2005 that involved tracking a female great white dubbed ‘Nicole’ from South Africa to Australia and back. He was also a key figure behind OCEARCH, the largest shark-tracking research project in the world, which involved tagging and tracking 50 sharks including 35 great whites.
