Nearly 80 years since Amelia Earhart disappeared another fresh search for to work out what happened is about to get underway using sniffer dogs. 

A Pennsylvania-based group called International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR) is focusing on the theory that Earhart and  her navigator Fred Noonan made a crash landing.

They hypothesize that Earhart and Noonan used celestial navigation to land on a small coral atoll about 400 miles south of Howland Island, their original destination due to depleted fuel supplies. 

Ric Gillespie is the director of the organisation - known as TIGHAR for short - which is about to leave from Fiji with the trained dogs and sniff out the atoll.

He talks to Jesse about the latest expedition and hopes for solving one of aviation's biggest mysteries.

3:25 Critter of the Week: The Great White Shark

The White Pointer shark is the only marine fish in the Threatened Species Strategy.  They have 24 lower teeth and 26 upper teeth.

But we know very little about their lives and behaviour because they are hard to study.  That’s because there are not many of them, they move around a lot and they are fish, so they don’t need to surface to breathe.

DoC's Threatened Species Ambassador, Nicola Toki shares what we do know about these apex predators
