The Great White Shark Scientist - Sy Montgomery, Keith Ellenbogen

Imagine spending your days aboard a boat specially modified for studying great white sharks. You can stand or even lie on your belly just feet above a shark to record a video of it or attach a telemetry tag to its dorsal fin. Imagine using the data you collect to learn about individuals’ characteristics and to track larger migration patterns and trends. This is the life of Dr. Greg Skomal, The Great White Shark Scientist (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, $18.99). Join award-winning science writer Sy Montgomery and photographer Keith Ellenbogen as they ride the Aleutian Dream with Greg and his team just off the coast of Cape Cod, then enter a shark cage to descend into the waters off Guadalupe Island. The most recent title in the remarkable and highly regarded series Scientists in the Field is a fantastic way to celebrate Shark Week and learn more about these mysterious animals, whose populations are dwindling worldwide. Ages 11-15.
