Atlantic White Shark Conservancy (AWSC) supports scientific research, educates the community, and improves public safety. AWSC is a nonprofit, tax-exempt charitable organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
The Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries (MA DMF) white shark research, led by Dr. Greg Skomal, relies on outside funding to conduct research. AWSC is the only nonprofit working directly with the MA DMF to financially support current and long term white shark research projects.
