Shark Tracking Project

Shark Tracking Project with Conservation International Includes World’s Largest Fish



Mother nature is being destroyed each day with different types of technological advancements. In this entire destruction, animals also are falling prey. Currently, the oceans waters are the worst affected due to pollution and other challenges. This has deliberately affected the animal habitats of the ocean as well. For example, every year, an estimated 70 million sharks are killed just for the sake of shark fin soup. The sudden depletion in the population of sharks has negatively affected the marine ecosystem.

Giti Tires have made an initiative to join conservation internationally to protect marine life and other environmental causes. In addition, Giti has come forward to help with the financial and educational support for the environment. These initiatives will certainly help to make wildlife much more protected and better their lifestyles.

Giti Tires participation

Giti has been participating in many conservational causes ever since its development and launch. Currently, it has decided to help and cure mother nature with Conservation International (CI). The main purpose of conservational internationalism is to protect the environment in and around Asia effectively. The partnership also includes the support of Giti with CI’s preservation efforts on shark tagging features. The technological advancement has rightly helped conservation international expand their efforts to protect the wildlife by tracking tagged fishes online.

Wildlife creatures, especially underwater, often become endangered species due to poaching. It is also a challenge to keep an eye on the underwater animal kingdom. Underwater life’s biggest threat is that of water pollution and trafficking activities. The new initiative of shark tracking of Giti with Conservation international will surely resort to this challenge. This measure helps the wildlife officials to be aware of the movement of the species underwater. The tracking initiates an online real-time tracking, including the world’s largest fish, which is tagged in Indonesia. Now, Giti has its shark ranging in 4.75 meters named after the company itself. They have asked CI to track their shark at all times on the official website of CI.

They attached a satellite to the whale shark’s dorsal fin to identify their route underwater during that time. Conservation international at that time effectively partnered with the fishermen to connect the sharks with the satellite. This helped the scientists to study the whereabouts of the sharks and how they were in danger of poachers. The satellites attached with the whale shark had a battery life of two years; thereby, there was no need to reinstall it if any emergency occurred.

Giti has previously also partnered with Conservation International to safeguard the lives of 400 Orangutans from the forest. They have also taken better policies to help the locals earn some livelihood with rubber production. Thereby, CI does not only have positive policies for wildlife but also for humans.
