    #FactFriday: Nurse sharks, unlike most other sharks, pump water over their gills to get oxygen. This adaptation allows them to spend most of their time lying on the seafloor. New research shows that this “sluggish lifestyle” uses 18% of the energy of other sharks and may help nurse sharks thrive.Learn more #FunFacts about #sharks on our Education Portal: https://www.livingoceansfoundation.org/education/portal/ ...

    Amazing news! Today, The Bahamas announced the discovery of the largest seagrass bed on the planet. The nearly 93,000 square kilometer meadow was mapped with the help of sharks wearing 360-degree cameras– an ingenious and fitting tactic for the shark-iest place in the Atlantic. The ocean nation has long teetered on the frontlines of the climate crisis, battling rising sea levels and the growing threat of giant storms. This incredible discovery offers a path forward to creating a thriving blue economy for the people, the planet, and the extraordinary megafauna patrolling their waters. Please join me in congratulating The Bahamas and our dedicated partners in ocean science for their extraordinary leadership in the race to protect our planet’s Blue Capital.
