1. The Great Shark SnapshotJuly 22-30, 2023

About the Event

This event gets divers directly involved with shark and ray conservation. You can learn more about the Great Shark Snapshot here, to take part in Shark Trust’s community science project and help them gather vital information about global shark distribution.
All sharks and rays spotted between July 22-30 can be logged into the Shark Log database or their new Shark Trust app. Over time, each Snapshot will build a clearer picture for shark scientists and conservationists about the species distribution around the world and population changes. 1/3 of sharks and rays are threatened from destructive fishing, climate change and habitat destruction. The data collected will help scientists put effective conservation plans in place to help species.
