Hey Anglers,

My name is Craig and I am an avid fisherman and shark biologist! I own the NY-based non-profit, O'Seas Conservation Foundation that focuses on youth education and shark research. We've been in operation for 4 years and will be running our shark camp this summer in Montauk. This is an exciting opportunity for 8th-12th grade students to get their hand dirty and get involved in some real shark research, where they will catch, tag, and release sharks, track sharks, extensively fish, and learn a variety of different research techniques used to survey the seafloor (baited camera systems, troll pros).

Our camp is just about full, but thought i'd inform you that we have a full scholarship provided by the Greg Norman Company for one 8th-12th grade youth to participate in our week-long camp over the summer for free ( The scholarship entry deadline is April 1st, but if you know of a kid who loves Marine Biology and wants to learn the tools of the trade and even go swimming with a shark at the Long Island Aquarium, I suggest you have them apply. Here is a quick video we made of the program (
). There are a bunch of Shark Camp videos on the youtube channel so you can see our activities.

Thanks so much and hope to get some essays for the scholarship soon!

Kind Regards,
