Fundraiser to name a Guadalupe Island white shark Devin


The Marine Conservation Science Institute proudly announces the naming of a Guadalupe Island great white shark. We are naming this male shark Devin, after a young man who is courageously battling Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at the young age of 18. He recently made an amazing trip to Guadalupe Island and saw a shark that was previously identified but had never been named. We think it very fitting that this shark now be named Devin! We are asking the community to take part in helping MCSI in achieving this goal of gifting a named shark to a deserving young man. MCSI is a nonprofit that depends on donations and public support to do the work we do, and we typically reserve naming rights for those who financially contribute. In this case we feel Devin deserves the honor of having a shark named after him. The naming of this shark is our gift as a community to Devin and we will honor this gift regardless of the amount collected. We at MCSI appreciate any and all contributions to assist in allowing Devin to have a shark named after him.

As an incentive to help us with this fundraiser, several of our partners have donated gift packages that will be given away. Every $25 donated will enter your name in a drawing for 1 of 3 gift packages.
