Record Your Sighting

The Basking Shark Project is a collaborative research project that uses sightings information and photo-identification to learn more about Basking Sharks. Researchers may be able to identify an individual shark from a single photograph, so if a shark is re-sighted and logged on the database they can match these photographs up and find out where that individual has travelled. By contributing to this project you are helping us to learn more about Basking Sharks, which will aid conservation and management strategies for them.

If you were unable to take a photo of the Basking Shark, your sightings information is still very valuable to us and can be recorded using our Sightings Database.
