About Pilar

The Story Behind the Name: Pilar the Shark was named in honor of Pilar Schuitema, a friend and supporter of our team at UM’s Shark Research and Conservation Program. We are thankful for Mrs. Schuitema’s help and dedication over the years and we look forward to seeing where Pilar the Shark’s travels to her in the months to come!
