Swiss watch brand Oris introduces the Hammerhead Limited Edition, a special edition watch to raise funds for a shark conservation project run by the non-profit organisation Pelagios Kakunjá, and supported by Oris ambassador and professional diver Jérôme Delafosse.
Project scientists will tag sharks using MiniPAT satellite transmitters funded by Oris. Each transmitter will track the sharks for six to nine months before being automatically released on a set date and floating to the surface, from where they will transmit collected data to satellites. This data will help scientists understand sharks better so they can advise government agencies on fishing practices. Fishing is one of the greatest threats to sharks, which can become entangled in nets while feeding.
Jérôme will join the expedition together with fellow conservationists Dr James Ketchum, Pelagios Kakunjá’s Director of Marine Conservation; shark specialist Dr Mauricio Hoyos, who filmed the largest Great White Shark ever captured on film; and record-breaking freediver and underwater photographer Fred Buyle.
