Volunteers

The UK Shark Tagging Programe is aimed at sport shak anglers, who record, tag and release the sharks that they catch.

A lot of people contact Ken explaining that they are divers, can drive boats or have other experience on the water and would like to help.

Diving is not very useful in UK shark research because the water is not generally clear enough..Richard Peirce, Chairman of the Shark Trust has started cage diving off Cornwall to observe sharks.

I occassionally arrange to send students out with charter boat skippers to be useful, making tea and help record their catches.

If you are passionate about shark conservation you should join the SHARK TRUST
