Shark research made visible

The Dutch Shark Society wants to be an active intermediate partner between science and people, by supporting and visualizing research, and developing media initiatives through photography and film.

As conservationist Baba Dioum stated:

“In the end we will conserve only what we love. We will love only what we understand. We will understand only what we are taught.”

This summer, we are working on Dutch shark research projects, documenting shark tagging, but also on the citizen science project ‘Sharkatag’, in which recreational angler contribute to shark conservation. Shortly, we will publish a eggcase determination guide for Dutch shark and ray species.

But of course, there is a lot more research going on than we can cover. So we herewith present some research clips to watch!
