The head alone was brought back to shore, presumably with the intention of keeping the shark’s jaws as a trophy.

Aliwal Shoal is a place that is very special to the Shark Angels. And, we've long believed in the power of citizen science as a means of contributing to conservation. We are thrilled that Shark Angel Jess Vyvyan-Robinson has launched a program locally to help ID the tiger shark population. After all, the more we know, the more we can conserve and protect. And, everyone can get involved.
