Video: Caterpillar and OCEARCH Are Working Together to Help Sustain Oceans

OCEARCH releases great white sharkPR 09/23/2014 - This video highlights the exciting and sustainable efforts of OCEARCH and its global research on sharks. OCEARCH has led 16 expeditions to safely research the breeding, feeding, migration and birthing patterns of these ocean creatures.

"Earlier this year, Caterpillar and OCEARCH agreed to a multi-year partnership to help propel the OCEARCH organization's global research on sharks. "Most people think sharks are invincible," said OCEARCH founder Chris Fischer. "But they are in real danger." We must find a sustainable path forward because sharks play a crucial role in maintaining balance in the delicate oceanic ecosystem.

Now, thanks to the generous sponsorship of Caterpillar, we can continue our critical research expeditions that generate the data needed to inform policy makers, students and the general public on this issue."
