Sponsor A Shark

Sponsor a Guadalupe Island Great White shark

MCSI’s Guadalupe Island photo-ID project has been monitoring the white sharks of Guadalupe Island since 2001. Not only does this project allows us to track the visitation patterns of individual sharks but also allows us to monitor the overall status of the population. This long time series of data allows us to examine whether the population is increasing, decreasing or stable and is a key component in the conservation and management of northeastern Pacific white sharks.
