Sharks: A Bimini Journal

Sharks: A Bimini Journal

In an effort to dispel myths and educate the public about the realities of sharks, Marine Biology Professor Samuel Gruber has been conducting shark research off the coast of Florida for more than 25 years. With the help of grants from the Office of Naval Research, Professor Gruber has expanded his research program into a "hands-on" field research experience for over 1,000 inner city students. This program documents the experiences of four of those students, who travel with Professor Gruber to the Bimini Biological Field Station, where they assist his research team in tracking sharks, measuring tidal variations, and recording shark migration patterns. Through their own words and journal entries, viewers see how the students learn about cooperation, interdependence, and hard work, and how they deal with the uncertainties of any field research effort, encountering logistical problems, harsh weather, and emotional turmoil. Their "chance of a lifetime" adventure culminates in a swim with the sharks, a physical and emotional immersion into a surreal underwater visual environment where plants are animals, flocks of birds are schools of fish, and 300-toothed sea creatures become their friends. Produced by the Univ. of Miami School of Communications. 03/08DE PIJSCA 30 min.
