Introducing Atlantic White Shark Conservancy

Welcome to the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy blog! We are an all volunteer non-profit organization based in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, established in 2012 to support great white shark research, education, and conservation.

2009 marked the first time great white sharks were successfully tagged in the U.S. North Atlantic. Tags have been deployed each summer off the coast of Cape Cod to monitor local and large scale movements of great whites. By tracking local movements, scientists can work with local officials to help keep the public safe and by monitoring large scale movements, we can learn more about shark behavior once they leave the Cape.

Public education on great white sharks will bring a greater awareness and appreciation for this vulnerable apex predator. By supporting research and education, the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy is taking steps to ensure the future of this magnificent species.

Atlantic White Shark Conservancy is a nonprofit,tax-exempt charitable organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code
