SharkLab Isle of Wight
SharkLab is a citizen science project. We record and collate information about the amazing, rare and protected marine species we have on the Isle of Wight biosphere, and in our marine conservation zone.
We focus primarily on education. We aim to spread awareness of the situations our oceans are facing, working with schools, community groups and businesses.
Contributions, collaboration and ideas exchange from other groups are welcome.
Sharklab is on Facebook
