Ralph Collier heads the Global Shark Attack File. In 1990, a group of physicians, surgeons, and medical examiners formed the Global Shark Attack File (GSAF). Initially created for medical professionals, it soon expanded to include marine biologists and shark behaviorists. In 1993, SRI was asked to maintain the file. In 2010, Ralph Collier, who has studied shark/human interactions for more than 40 years, was appointed Director of the GSAF. In addition to serving the medical, scientific and conservation community, the GSAF provides the media with accurate data to counteract the negative hype about shark accidents.
