Atlantic White Shark Conservancy


We are a small nonprofit having a big impact in our mission to support scientific research, improve public safety, and educate the community to inspire shark conservation.

Since 2013, with funding from the Conservancy, scientists have tagged over 90 white sharks and identified over 300, public safety around Massachusetts has improved, young girls have been inspired to become scientists through our Gills Club, and thousands of people have visited our Chatham Shark Center to learn about one of the ocean's most captivating yet misunderstood species.
