Fins Attached



Citizen Science Research Expeditions

Fins Attached conducts research expeditions throughout the year. Some of these trips are open to donors of Fins Attached. The expeditions allow donors to participate and first hand shark research to see how their donation are being used to study and protect sharks. We have found that these experiences completely transform the perceptions that individuals have about and towards sharks.
