The non-profit ocean research group OCEARCH is at it again, doing good things for mother nature.

On 3 March, their team captured, tagged, studied, and released a 2000+ pound, 14-foot, female great white shark off the coast of Jacksonville, Florida. They named it Lydia after the founder of Bradley University, a long time friend of expedition sponsor Caterpillar.

Here’s the video of their successful catch and release:
