Member Admin



This is a A very good group of dedicated scientist and individuals involved in satellite tagging hammerhead sharks in Florida to study post fight release survival . "The American Shark Conservancy (ASC) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the conservation of sharks and rays, increasing awareness and understanding of our oceans, through research and education. The ASC was founded in 2014 by Hannah Medd, a marine biologist with a focus on science-based conservation and communication regarding sharks and rays." There Philosophy "Effective conservation requires research and outreach. Strong science supports sustainable proposals and the public’s voice is required to secure these as policies. The general public is not expected to know or understand the complexities of science and conservation so it is our job to provide correct information to support science literacy to foster a better understanding and appreciation of our natural world. It is not all about the sharks. Although the organization focuses primarily on cartilaginous fishes, we know they are only one piece of the marine ecosystem puzzle. We will always consider the broader context of any task we undertake." PLEASE CHECK THEM OUT and Donate to the organization
