The moment is finally here!

It is with great pleasure that we announce the arrival of our remarkable new book ‘Shark Doc, Shark Lab’! A book that will take you on an astonishing journey of one man’s insatiable drive to understand and protect our planet’s most revered predator: the shark.

From his lesser-known early days as a top board diver and ballet dancer to his experience conquering a terminal illness, Dr. ‘Doc’ Gruber’s journey is enthralling and completely unique. The book also includes hilarious anecdotes from various generations of Shark Lab alumni, describing their unique experiences with sharks, science, sandflies, and the famed founder himself.

And here’s the twist..

All funds generated from the sales of this incredible book, will go towards RE-BUILDING THE SHARK LAB itself! Yes you read that correctly! Since our birth 25 years ago, not much has changed at the Shark Lab, and it’s time to (literally) build on old turf (or perhaps more accurately, our flooding mangrove fringed plot!). Your donation will DIRECTLY, and ENTIRELY go towards a rather ambitious goal; we plan to rebuild and inject longevity into the Shark Lab by transforming it into a sturdy, hurricane proof, environmentally friendly field station!

To go on, we have a number of donation options for you to consider. From signed copies of the ‘Shark Doc, Shark Lab‘ book, to forever being a part of the facility by naming one of our rooms (!) -you can support us through various methods! Please visit the following link to be part of this pivotal moment in Shark Lab history and help us make a difference.

At this point we would like to thank the Save Our Seas Foundation for taking this book from concept to reality, with special thanks to both Michael and Peter Scholl for their continuous support, inspiration and contagious enthusiasm.
