The Shark Base citizen science project was established by SOS in 2015 and operated through 2020. Unfortunately, the project came to an end in 2020 as a result of the global pandemic, which resulted in a significant reduction in essential funding. Consequently, we could no longer maintain the project and so came to the difficult decision to bring it to a close. The following pages act as a record of the Shark Base project to highlight its achievements, and also act as a resource to access the data and information collected throughout the program.
Thank you to everyone that participated in the Shark Base program. We had an amazing user base of 1952 participations actively sharing over 27,421 shark sightings from around the world.
