Our mission is to understand the biology of sharks and rays and the role that they play in the marine ecosystem through cutting edge field and laboratory research, spanning multiple disciplines such as molecular and behavioural ecology, physiology, conservation and sensory biology.
We strive to educate future scientists by providing opportunities for students to design and conduct research projects at the undergraduate and graduate level, to complete advanced university degrees in the marine sciences; and through voluntary training as interns, thus advancing their field experience and skills.
We work to enhance conservation and awareness by disseminating our results to both the public (tours of our facility, talks, TV documentaries, social media, posters and blogs) and scientists (peer-reviewed journals, conference presentations and posters, fishery reports and books).
SUPPORT OUR MISSION
The Bimini Biological Field Station operates year round, allowing students, visitors, and scientists the opportunity to learn more about sharks and the important role they play. The generosity of our supporters allows us to continue to our long term research efforts, and contribute to the conservation of many elasmobranch species.
