Name a Tagged Shark

For a small, $25 donation, you can name your own shark and receive the scientific data we collect in the field that is unique to that shark.

You can support our shark research by naming a shark we tag.

When you donate to name a shark, we will tag a shark on your behalf with an identification tag. You will then receive a card with the following information:

  • The name that you choose!
  • Species of shark
  • Size
  • Gender
  • The date that SRC tagged your shark
