HOW WE CARRY OUT THE MISSION
With the collaboration of Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries, the Cape Cod National Seashore, and officials from Cape Cod and South Shore Towns, we developed the Sharktivity app. Users are provided information on white shark sightings, detections, and movements, and are given access to new research. As always, our goal is to raise awareness and facilitate the peaceful coexistence between humans and white sharks.

While sharks are awesome, they are also misunderstood. Many equate shark behavior with what has been shown in the infamous “Jaws” movie or with sensational stories presented in the media. AWSC’s mission to provide education to school-aged children and the public at large focuses on debunking myths about white sharks and incorporating in a holistic understanding of marine ecosystems.
