The Gills Club


The Gills Club is Atlantic White Shark Conservancy's STEM-based education initiative dedicated to connecting girls with female scientists from around the world, sharing knowledge, and inspiring the next generation of shark and ocean advocates. 

With the motto “Smart About Sharks, Gills Club members are provided with tools to educate their peers about sharks through newsletters and hands-on learning opportunities at events. In addition to being a vehicle that will foster positive attitudes towards sharks, we want this group to jump-start girls’ interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) subjects, boosting their chances of entering careers in science.
