About This Project

This project is to fund the naming of a new species, the ghost shark! We need $1800 to do this to cover analysis, publication preparation and outreach. The ghost shark is one of 15 shark new species we have discovered, but all currently lack scientific names. All need to be described and named, so if we raise more money during the 30 days all additional funding will go towards naming new lost sharks.

The project addresses major gaps in the biodiversity and conservation of sharks in the WIO.

Blast off!
