Tiger Shark - Conservation Creature Plush


REEF Conservation Creatures are iconic marine species from REEF’s Volunteer Fish Survey Project regions. These marine creatures highlight the diversity of ocean ecosystems and encourage understanding and respect for marine life. We hope they inspire you to join REEF and learn more about the marine environment.

Tiger Shark (Galeocerdo cuvier) are named for their dark, vertical stripes that tend to fade as they get older. They have an excellent sense of sight and smell and are highly successful predators. Tiger Sharks have a reputation for eating anything, even non-food items including garbage, which has earned them the nickname "wastebasket of the sea." They are found tropical and sub-tropical waters all over the world, including REEF's TWA, SAS, TEP, HAW, SOP, CIP, and NE regions.

You can chose to simply purchase the plush, or symbolically adopt the Conservation Creature and help further REEF's marine conservation mission.
