Funded by the Bertarelli Foundation, a team from Hopkins Marine Research Station, Stanford University attached camera tags to sharks for the first time in the British Indian Ocean Territory (BIOT) MPA. After locating the released tag, Dr Taylor Chapple recovered some fasciniating underwater footage filmed from the shark's point of view. The Bertarelli Foundation helped to establish the MPA around BIOT in 2010 and since then has funded a programme of marine science to help us learn more about this important part of the world.
