In March of 2014, Barbara Lloyd and I founded Ocean Sanctuaries to support and create marine citizen science projects. For the story behind that, please see here: http://oceansanctuaries.org/wordpress/about-us/

The Sevengill Shark ID Project is one of two shark documentation projects we run.

The other is a partnership with National Geographic, which uses their citizen science data collection tool called ‘Fieldscope‘ which we have customized to allow divers to document and track non-Sevengill shark species off the coast of California. For more information on that project, please see here: http://oceansanctuaries.org/wordpress/citizen-science-projects/fieldscope/
