THE Shark Trust’s flagship citizen science project continues to expand as new recorders join from around the world.
A trust spokesperson said: Thanks to our citizen scientists, we’ve already collected over 200,000 eggcase records.
“As it grows, the project needs support to make sure we’re providing the best experience for our recorders and ensuring that all the data is put to good use.
“Something as simple as kicking through the strandline on a beach can lead to valuable data that helps shark conservation.
“A donation to support the Great Eggcase Hunt will be placed in a fund that helps us keeps the project moving forward. In the coming years we want to:
Improve our online recording portal
Improve and expand our smartphone App to new languages and regions
Expand ‘Underwater Eggcases’ working with Scuba divers and snorkellers
Build a global eggcase guide
“Your support is really appreciated and will help the Great Eggcase Hunt go form strength to strength.”
