A SPECIAL THANKS TO OUR FUNDING SOURCES
In addition to the support we have received from scientific sources, my research would not have been possible without the help of the broader community.
This year, the 2017 Ireland Basking Shark Project (a collaboration with the Irish Basking Shark Study Group and Queen’s University Belfast) was supported largely through crowdfunding. The money we received was used to purchase four continuous pinging sensor tags and one accelerometer. With these, we will be able to tag and track the movement of at least four basking sharks in Malin Head, Ireland in August, 2017 to provide valuable, novel data about this endangered species.

Thank you very much to those who donated their time to learning about the project and their money to make it happen.
