The protection of a variety of shark species depends on conservation efforts because they are a particularly vulnerable marine animal. A team of researchers at the School of Mathematical and Natural Sciences at Arizona State University have developed a new “birth-alert-tag” (BAT) device, the first of its kind, that can be implanted in a pregnant shark to help monitor the precise time and location of shark births. The device itself looks like a small egg that’s implanted into the uterus of a pregnant shark. Then, when the shark gives birth, the device comes out as well.
