The White Shark Conservation Trust has been established to promote awareness of the need to conserve and protect the white shark, Carcharodon carcharias and to educate the public about the animal. This action was triggered by a personal desire of one of the Trustees who decided he could no longer remain an armchair environmentalist. The realisation of the absolute fragility of these creatures was brought home to Bruce Goorney on a life changing expedition to see the sharks first hand at the Neptune Islands in the Spencer Gulf, South Australia in January 2008.

The Mexican government has decided to close all public access to the waters around Guadalupe Island. There's pretty much no body keeping an eye on the largest sharks in the Pacific. That's concerning. Who knows what's going there. Without ecotourism in the area, bad folks get unmonitored access to this unique place. I really hope the sharks are safe. Only time will tell I guess. -#greatwhiteshark #discoversharks ... See MoreSee Less

Yesterday an 8' long juvenile female Great White shark washed up dead near tower 2. She had succumbed to injuries sustained from fishing activities. Great Whites are protected and must be safely released if accidentally caught. We took the opportunity to turn this unfortunate event into an educational opportunity for our visitors. Juvenile Great Whites have become a frequent visitor to the Torrey Pines coastal area. The device hanging from her back is a Geo tracker installed by Cal State Long Beach. More information on Great Whites and the tracking program can be found here: www.csulb.edu/shark-lab ... See MoreSee Less
