Whitetip Reef Shark, Triaenodon obesus

The whitetip reef shark project of Hawaii uses innovative techniques to study the activity patterns, movements, mating behavior, and genetic population structure of whitetips within the Hawaiian Archipelago and across the tropical Pacific and Indian Oceans. If you have - or know someone who has - pictures of whitetip reef sharks from the Hawaiian Islands, we'd like to see them!
