It is really easy, to help sharks – First find your logbook.
When did you see a shark? How many hours underwater in the same area was it from seeing one shark to seeing the next.
Four items of information only – WHEN – WHERE – HOW MANY HOURS UNDERWATER – HOW MANY SHARKS
Example on your holiday at one location (Malindi Kenya in Aug 2009)
arrive 4 dives – 1 shark seen – 8 dives later – 2 sharks seen – 5 dives depart
total dives = 4+8+5 = 17dives Total sharks = 3.
Real data we received from one diver.
Brothers Red sea 2011 – 6 dives of 1h – 1 shark (grey reef) seen
Brothers Red sea – 2005 – 17 dives of 1h – 6 grey 1 leopard
Brothers Red sea – 1996 – 12 dives – too many to count – over 40 on each dive
What does this tell you? What about similar records from 4 divers or from 40! Could this data be used by shark NGO’s around the world to get better protection for The Brothers reef?
For some places, we have a lot of data and if you sent us data in 2011 thank you very much.
For some locations we have very few observations. Please Help GSS to help the sharks.
If you dive the same place regularly – how many dives in one year, how many sharks?
Fantastic if you know what species of shark – even better if you have a photo (upload to Facebook )
PLEASE INCLUDE ALL DIVES AT THE PLACE – NOT JUST THE ONES WHERE YOU SAW SHARKS
