Blue Shark Vodka proudly recognizes the exceptional achievement of Jon Dodd, Executive Director of the Atlantic Shark Institute, on his prestigious induction into The Explorers Club.
The Explorers Club, a globally revered society based in New York City, has been at the forefront of encouraging scientific exploration since its inception in 1904. Dodd’s admittance, joining the ranks of notable explorers such as Amelia Earhart and Sir Edmund Hillary, is a testament to his unwavering dedication to shark research and conservation, spanning over four decades.
Since its founding, Blue Shark Vodka has been deeply committed to the preservation of ocean and marine life. Under Dodd’s leadership, The Atlantic Shark Institute has been a valued partner in bringing these crucial conservation efforts to life.
For the past three years, Blue Shark Vodka has had the pleasure of partnering with Dodd and his team on “Tag a Blue or Two” shark-tagging missions. These expeditions involve tagging blue sharks with SPOT devices, allowing for precise tracking of their migration patterns. The data gathered from these efforts provides valuable insights into the sharks’ behavior and habitat preferences, and contributes significantly to blue shark conservation efforts.
As Jon Dodd joins the distinguished ranks of The Explorers Club, Blue Shark Vodka is proud to continue collaborations for conservation with the Atlantic Shark Institute under his expert leadership. Dodd’s induction is a tribute to his remarkable efforts and achievements in the field of marine conservation.
