Project Summary:
Anguilla Shark Conservation (ASC) is a multidisciplinary project that will increase knowledge of Anguilla’s shark populations, their habitats and conservation needs, while developing local ownership of conservation interventions through comprehensive community engagement. ASC will conduct Anguilla’s first ecological baseline assessment of sharks; integrate fisher knowledge; take account of community perceptions, and use all of the above to inform a national shark Species Action Plan (SAP) that considers community values, co-existence, new legislation, and spatial protection of sharks and their habitats.
