Coming Soon at Ocean Sanctuaries.org: ‘The Sharks of San Diego.’
Already consider yourself a veteran of logging Sevengill shark encounters?
Would you like a chance to log encounters with *other* species of shark?
Soon you will have a chance with National Geographic’s latest citizen science tool called: Fieldscope. You will be able to log sightings and photos of Leopard sharks, Horn sharks, Angel sharks, Tope sharks as well as pelagic species such as Blue, Mako, Great White and Thresher.
Due to its remoteness, this is one of the few areas in the world where the shark population is healthy.
