About Shark Count Galapagos

Shark Count Galapagos is a user-friendly tool that allows divers visiting the Galapagos Islands to participate in the conservation of marine life in the Galapagos Marine Reserve (GMR).
Using Shark Count, divers become “citizen scientists” and make important contributions to our understanding of Galapagos marine ecosystems by recording the number of sharks, sea turtles, rays and ocean sunfish they encounter during their dives, as well as other notable observations.
The Shark Count app displays reports generated from data contributed by divers at the top 20 Galapagos dive sites. All data collected through Shark Count is shared with the Galapagos National Park Directorate. As more and more data is collected, Shark Count will help decision makers better manage the GMR, while also giving dive tourists the knowledge of when and where they are likely to observe different species.

Shark Count has been designed to allow users to enter observations without an internet connection. Data is automatically uploaded after internet connectivity is restored. Registration is not required to observe existing observations or to view the species identification guide.

If you plan to dive in the Galapagos Islands, download Shark Count Galapagos and create your account before your trip so that you can play an active role in the conservation of this remarkable marine environment.
