The LAMAVE Team is looking for 2 EXPLORERS to join the next #ExpeditionShark4 - our fourth shark research expedition to Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park. This year expedition will run between the 22nd of May and the 2nd of June 2018.

The goal of this year expedition in collaboration with the Tubbataha Management Office and WWF-Philippines is to download the last year of data from 7 previously deployed acoustic receivers and continue the satellite and acoustic telemetry program on reef associated shark species and pelagic sharks. In addition to manta ray and whale shark photo-identification surveys will be conducted together with dedicated underwater visual surveys (UVS) and stereo photogrammetry to measure these giants.
