Shark Stories

Some individuals from our Caribbean reef shark population travel between Grand Cayman, Little Cayman and Cayman Brac. A female Caribbean reef shark which was tagged in 2013 in Grand Cayman travelled regularly to Little Cayman and Cayman Brac over the next 3 years, before its tag died in 2015.

Follow the lines to see where she went!
