ACTION ALERT: Your Online Vote Could Secure $10,000 for Shark Research

Shark blogger and graduate student David Shiffman is 24 hours and a few votes away from winning a $10,000 blogging scholarship for his shark research at the University of Miami -- but he needs your help now!


David Shiffman gave a presentation on the power of online shark advocacy at the International Marine Conservation Congress earlier this year in Victoria, BC, Canada, even mentioning Shark Defenders by name. Let's prove him right and help David Shiffman to win this scholarship.

This is what David Shiffman has to say about this scholarship:
"If I win, the money will be used to support shark conservation research. It will be supplies for my dissertation work, which focuses on the ecological importance of sharks to coral reef ecosystems. It will be used to support our lab's citizen science program, which has taken over 1,000 high school students and teachers into the field to learn about sharks and participate in an active research program. Additionally, I will adopt a satellite tagged shark in the name of the readers of Southern Fried Science, which they can name (through a contest) and follow on Google Earth."
So please take a moment to follow this link and vote for David Shiffman. He is the only ocean conservation blogger among the finalists, so let's help him win. And after you vote, please post the link to Facebook and Twitter and ask your followers to vote for David Shiffman.

Thank you very much for your assistance!
