During the recent Cayman Alternative Investment Summit at The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, Sir Richard Branson was presented with an original Guy Harvey print as the winner of the 2015 Great Shark Race.

In the innovative race, created by the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation and the Guy Harvey Research Institute at Nova Southeastern University in Florida, businesses and individuals sponsor sharks through the purchase of satellite tracking tags.

These tags allow researchers and the public to follow the fish online in near real time as they travel around the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico.

The 2016 Great Shark Race kicks off on April 25.
