Who are we?

Ocean Giants Trust is an international conservation charity, which protects the ocean’s largest and most threatened marine species, and their biologically important habitats.

What do we do?

Responding to the global threat of extinction to some of the most iconic species on the planet, we believe that only through integrating international research, with local marine conservation and education will Ocean Giants survive and thrive.

Who do we work with?

Working exclusively with both internationally renowned scientists, and local project partners we offer a new, refreshing and more effective approach to the understanding and protection of Ocean Giants.

  • Is this the first omnivorous shark species? 🦈🌿
.
New research has found that “60% of the bonnethead shark’s diet is made up of seagrass, which they happily graze upon as well as eating fish, crabs, snails and shrimp”.
Relatives to the hammerhead, these sharks actually digest seagrass, similar to green sea turtles. .
.
The findings have been published in The Proceedings of the Royal Society and you can read the full article in @guardian.
