Welcome to Sharks of California

We are empowering people to photograph and submit sightings of coastal California shark species so that scientists and marine conservation managers can better understand behaviors of coastal shark species and trends in their movements and populations.

This project is run by Ocean Sanctuaries, a non-profit whose main focus is to give all kinds of people exciting opportunities to do marine citizen science.
