Abstract

Jessica Cramp investigated shark sanctuary effectiveness on oceanic sharks, using a case study in the Cook Islands. She found that sharks benefited from the Sanctuary, but benefits varied based on sharks' movement ecology and release condition. Additionally, an adapted systematic conservation planning approach would close loopholes in shark conservation policy.
