Be among the first to research shysharks, catsharks, pajama sharks, and other small shark species, some of which live nowhere else in the world. They could disappear before humans get to learn much about them: 25 percent of the world’s shark and ray species (their relatives) face extinction. That’s why scientists want your help. Very little is known about the sharks in Walker Bay. To better protect them, scientists urgently need to understand the diversity of species and how they are distributed throughout the bay.
