Global FinPrint

We unite researchers and collaborators from around the world to study sharks, rays and other marine life on coral reefs using baited remote underwater video surveys (BRUVs). Our goal is to assess coral reef sharks and rays, understand how they affect these vanishing ecosystems, and inform emerging conservation actions.

Aiding Threatened Species

One-quarter of the world’s sharks and rays are threatened with extinction. The rest are either approaching threatened status or too poorly studied to be assessed. We're gathering the information needed to protect these animals.

About 

Worldwide Discoveries

Our researchers have collected data from hundreds of reefs. Among these sites are key locations that have deepened our understanding of shark and ray populations, inspiring optimism about their future.
