SHARKLAB – GLOBAL
Sharklab is a non- profit NGO and was founded by Andrej Gajic and Greg Nowell in 2008. As an expanding global organisation we collaborate with researchers based in Bosnia & Herzegovina, South Africa, Malta, North America, Equador, Kuwait, Spain, Italy, Japan, Brazil, Germany, France, Croatia, Australia, Malaysia, Maldives, Canada, Kuwait, and the UK.
Each researcher and research team follow the basic principles of research to aid the preservation and conservation of Sharks. All research work is sent to our bases in Bosnia and Malta and is used to highlight the plight of Sharks. The information gathered is published on our websites and is also shared through our member newsletters.
SHARKLAB – LOCAL
Sharklab- Malta follows a very local approach to get people involved in all kind of activities. The research currently being done in Malta includes studies on the biology and ecology of different species. The main goal is to increase awareness to help protect what are now endangered apex predators.
But research is not the only part of our work here in Malta. Our day-to.day work focuses on our mission to increase awareness and educate people. For this we organize regular awareness activities, eggcase searches, snorkels and SCUBA dives.
Our message to you: COME AND JOIN US
Our researchers and members have a wide variety of skills which they contribute to Sharklab, but we need more people to contribute and to make a difference. If you have time and enthusiasm to give sharks a better chance, then we need you. We are hoping that in time Sharklab will have researchers and members in all the countries on this blue planet, and we will stand a better chance of dealing with the problems that sharks are facing.
Being a member of Sharklab and contributing to our growing organisation will not only be beneficial for sharks, but will allow you to meet like-minded members and publish your own articles/photographs on the website.
To make a difference, get involved now!
