I’m writing you to thank you for your past engagement in our California community conservation and education, or joining us on our Sharktober Farallon Sanctuary expeditions. In 2021 we resumed our public education tours offshore, and we were able to host 12 marine debris surveys and ecoblitzes, and our annual Run 4 Sharks.
We have our first trips scheduled for the fall of 2022- please share and join us again on our new vessel the Amigo on Labor Day Weekend. As part of the NOAA’s White Shark Stewardship program we are collecting data on sharks in our Sanctuary. If you were with us and have videos or images of sharks we observed please submit them for the research and conservation program.Friendly whale delays our passage to the Farallon islands
|Marine megafauna like sharks, marine mammals, and sea turtles, need large areas of healthy habitat to safely forage and successfully reproduce. Shark Stewards is developing a community science program applying Ai technology to identify and track marine megafauna including manta rays and sharks. The goals of this program is to motivate divers to become community scientists and gather data that can be applied to conservation and marine protection.
With our partners Blue Endeavors, we will be leading an education and science diving expedition in June 12-20. We have a few spaces for divers to join us applying this new technology with students on a trip to Mexico’s famous Revillagigedos Islands, a national marine reserve and UNESCO World Heritage Site. Home to a rich and diverse marine ecosystem, these islands host some of the most magnificent marine megafauna in the Pacific. We will be recording mantas and sharks, testing pattern recognition software with WildMe and hardware developed with UC Berkeley’s Fung Fellowship.
Give a Super Valentine to the San Francisco Bay, our National Park and Pacific Ocean on our beach cleanup in our San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park Saturday February 12. These are held monthly and we hope to revive our youth ocean education program in 2022. We are also conducting an ecoblitz with National Geographic for the Bay Area Science Festival April 24. Check out our Southern California beach cleanups and Earth Day outreach on our events page.
