The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) organised a White Shark Conservation Research Workshop during 20-22 January 2004 in order to collate as much information as possible about the Great White Shark population and movements worldwide. The outcome of this workshop should form the basis for a proposal for CITES to list Carcharodon carcharias on the Appendix I. Michael Scholl was invited to join the workshop to present his research conducted at Dyer Island.
28 hours of flights, connections and waiting around in airports... and for most of the flight, nothing to see but white uniform clouds... the last hour of the flight, the sky beneath cleared and I could follow the icy Canadian and American coastline as we approached New York... but by then, I did not know how to shift my butt in a comfortable position anymore... Finally New York!!!
