Sharks have the strongest electroreception (sensitivity to electrical fields) in the animal kingdom.
They use this unique capability to navigate at night, when in murky water, and to hunt.
When sharks approach Sharkbanz, they detect the device’s strong electromagnetic field, which provides a sudden sensation that is thousands of times stronger than the signal produced by anything in a shark’s normal food chain.
Consequently, sharks are deterred away from Sharkbanz.
INTRODUCTION Many animal care facilities, such as zoos and laboratories, are beginning to view operant conditioning as a valuable management tool (Laule, 1993).
Slobbering, irrational defenders of some twisted ‘ideal’ are everywhere, finally getting their chance to do some damage however minor. I’m not preaching Let’s All Be Nice and Love Each Other: just slow down and decide what kind of person you want to be.

It is often necessary to move chimpanzees utilized for biomedical research due to their infection status, study constraints, or management concerns, such as the need to have a building repaired or painted.
Apes are difficult to move and moving them typically requires sedation, lifting a heavy chimpanzee which poses danger to personnel, the use of heavy equipment for movement of the animal, and monitoring of the chimpanzee during recovery from anesthesia.
What if you could stick a camera on a shark so that the shark goes about its life, unaware that its actions were being recorded away from the distractions of photographers in scuba suits? For a naturalist, being able to observe animal behavior without interfering with the world the animal inhabits by the simple act of being there is the gold standard.
In scientific terms, it's similar to a control in an experiment.
