NSU’s Shark Race to the White House In the News

Local & National Media Pick Up the Story


FORT LAUDERDALE/DAVIE, FL – 
It seems everywhere you turn, there’s a Shark photo w-logonew political poll out showing one candidate or the other leading in the run to be President. In keeping with that theme, researchers at NSU’s Halmos College of Natural Sciences and Oceanography decided to turn to their experts to help predict the next President of the United States.

And when we say experts, we’re talking about mako sharks of course.

NSU’s Shark Race to the White House has two satellite tagged mako sharks – the Clinton Shark and the Trump Shark – who are providing data that will be used to predict who will win the election. Whichever shark swims the most miles from Oct. 3 – Nov. 1 will “win,” hence, foretell the next POTUS.

Oh, and each shark has its own slogan:

Trump Shark: Mako America Great Again
Clinton Shark: Swimming Stronger Together

Several media outlets  have covered this project – you can see their stories below:

 

NBC-6 Miami

CBS-4 Miami

Sun-Sentinel
