eOceans - marine citizen science for science. See publication list. 

eOceans has two main projects at this time:

1) This project is Urgent!  To proceed with analysis, I need:

5 expert divers from each of:

Palau, Honduras, French Polynesia, Reunion, Seychelles, Egypt, Brazil, Malaysia, Mexico, Mozambique

10 expert divers from each of: 

Ecuador, Belize, New Caledonia, Cook Islands, Micronesia, British Virgin Islands, Marshall Islands, Tonga, Kiribati, Samoa, Cocos Islands (Australia), Costa Rica 

*experts have >200 dives or 2 years in an area

Urgent! 10 minute Conservation Survey

 2) Marine ecosystems are in a state of decline — lack of data often supports inaction. eShark is a collaborative volunteer effort between Science, Outreach and Field Teams counting sharks, rays, jellyfish, turtles, seahorses, dolphins, whales, seals and garbage on daily excursions to assess conservation needs and successes. Concentrated counts are underway in Thailand, Fiji and Indonesia to fill data gaps and identify priority conservation areas. eShark is ongoing since 2007: contact us to set up a concentrated census in your area.

New! Global Marine Conservation Survey

Marine conservation strategies exist — every country does it differently. Our new survey aims to learn how these strategies work, using sharks as an indictor. Join hundreds of divers, fishers, boaters and other explorers sharing their experiences with eOceans ­— because every perspective matters.  

In just 10 minutes, summarize all your observations from one country to help us better understand current management strategies in the area, and help us identify existing threats that may need to be mitigated.

Conservation Survey

Then, help spread the word and encourage others to participate – follow us on Twitter (eOceans_org), Facebook (eOceans) and share the ‘call to action'. Or, get involved more actively and help us get the survey to other experts (e.g., dive instructors in dive shops). The work of our field volunteers has been very helpful and we’ve managed to get the data needed for some countries in just a matter of days! The more perspectives we have, the clearer the picture for best ways forward in marine conservation.


Ongoing Survey! Since 2007

Ongoing survey - every time you go to sea, join hundreds of others and fill out your checklist of sharks, rays, turtles, whales, jellyfish, garbage and seals.
