Myrtle Beach is Ripley’s hub for scientific research. The Marine Science Research Center made waves in spring 2022 by producing the world’s first successful birth by artificial insemination of a sand tiger shark, advancing research and species survival. Named “Rip” after the company’s founder, Robert LeRoy Ripley, this pup marked a significant step for its species around the world.
