Hidden beneath the surface of the sea is a phenomenon we know almost nothing about. On land, scientists have long studied the great animal migrations, but in the ocean some of the most spectacular events go almost unnoticed. Now, with an international team of scientists, National Geographic examines the movements of hammerhead sharks. How do they navigate? Do they possess an internal compass? What prompts them to seek out distant destinations? In a world threatened by overfishing and declining marine populations, understanding their behavior may be the key to ensuring hammerhead survival.

Hammerheads school in enormous numbers. Coral reefs ripple with color by day but at night turn into killing grounds for packs of whitetip sharks. Pristine waters brim with tuna and dolphins in hot pursuit of clouds of fish. Isla del Coco, or Cocos Island, appears as a tiny dot on a map in the Pacific Ocean more than 300 miles off the coast of Costa Rica, and is home to one of the greatest concentrations of predators on the planet. Dive into this carnivorous crowd in Shark Island with marine ecologist Enric Sala and an international team of explorers and scientists. The team traverses hundreds of square miles of ocean in search of clues to explain why so many predators congregate here and why, just outside Cocos' protected waters, life largely disappears.
