Nurse Shark Population Shark and Ray Alley San Pedro, Belize

MarAlliance has been studying the nurse shark (Ginglymostoma cirratum) population at the Hol Chan Marine Reserve Zone D since 2014. The aggregation site, also known as Shark and Ray Alley, is a popular site for tourists. Tour operators use bait to attract the sharks to their boats to give guests close encounters with the sharks – a practice known as provisioning.
