Awareness Inspires Conservation: White Sharks in the North Atlantic

Presented by Cynthia Wigren, Executive Director and Co-founder, Atlantic White Shark Conservancy

Despite its well-established presence in the North Atlantic, the white shark is not considered an abundant species. Off the coast of Cape Cod, scientists have predictable access to white sharks, but rely on outside funding to conduct research. Atlantic White Shark Conservancy (AWSC) was established in 2012 to fund white shark research and promote shark education. From 2009-2015, Massachusetts scientists have tagged 80 white sharks with coded acoustic transmitters and/or satellite-based tracking tags to examine fine- and broad-scale movements along the east coast of the US. In 2014, these scientists began a multi-year study to estimate local and regional white shark population sizes in the Western North Atlantic. This presentation provides information on AWSC and highlights the results of the research.
