Normally, the coastal lines only have a few wandering sharks. However, there's more than average heading this way right now. The Outer Banks of North Carolina are receiving their fair share of shark action with even more nearing South Carolina and Georgia.\nHumans are consistently learning about marine life and their habits through tracking systems placed on a variety of animals including sharks, whales, dolphins and turtles.\nOne tracking company, Ocearch, is keeping us connected with their detailed tracking monitors and tags. Using their live models, animal lovers and virtual adventurers can watch these creatures' trails.\nCurrently, on the live model, viewers will be able to see around 15 great white sharks swimming around the coast. There are a few heading near the South Carolina coast with even more (currently about 13) around the Georgia coast.\nView this post on Instagram Today white shark Unama’ki pinged in just north of the Bahamas on the eastern edge of the Gulf Stream. We’ve tracked sharks like Hilton and Luna as they stayed on the far side of the Stream on their journeys south from Canada, now we will see if Unama’ki plans to stay on the eastern edge as she makes her way back north. 📷@robertsnowphoto A post shared by OCEARCH (@ocearch) on Apr 13, 2020 at 2:39pm PDT\nEach shark (and other tracked animals) have names along with a detailed description of their length, weight, gender and breed. At this moment, Helena, Jefferson, Shaw and Nova are near North Carolina.\nHelena and Jefferson are 12 feet long and are both around 1,300 pounds. Shaw is 10 feet long and only 564 pounds. Nova is in the middle of the crew, coming in at 11 feet long and a little over 1,100 pounds.\nView this post on Instagram Making a splash off the coast of North Carolina today is white shark Helena. Her ping today is right in the heart of an area that’s about 100-square-miles where we’ve received pings from several white sharks over the past couple of days. 📷 @robertsnowphoto A post shared by OCEARCH (@ocearch) on Mar 26, 2020 at 2:04pm PDT\nIn a 2018 interview with The Daily Beast, Malin Pinsky — an Associate Professor from Rutgers' Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Natural Resources — analyzed data from North Carolina's Division of Marine Fisheries. He concluded that a shift in water temperatures may be causing the sharks to migrate closer to shores.\nView this post on Instagram Happy World Wildlife Day! This year’s theme is “Sustaining All Life On Earth.” Sharks play an important role in sustaining life by maintaining the species below them in the food chain and acting as balance keepers of the ocean.

However, learning about these massive creatures might be just as exciting as the classic movie.
