Mission

 

The mission of GEERG is to advance scientific knowledge on the Greenland shark and northern shark species, to promote shark awareness and conservation, and to support youth environmental initiatives. The results of our work are made available to the scientific community and to the general public, in particular academic institutions, schools and museums.

 

Sharks are dangerous. Why should we help them?

 

Heard that one before? If the myth of the Greenland shark's presence in the St. Lawrence is now a thing of the past, it will be difficult to dispel the misconceptions at the source of all shark stereotypes and misconceptions. When dealing with such an ancient and deep-rooted issue, the best approach will always be research and education.

 

Sharks are crucial to the world ocean's equilibrium. Unfortunately, poor research funding, overfishing, and the overall negative public perception on sharks, are leading to their ultimate demise with tragic effects on the environment. With your help, GEERG aims to help reverse this trend in Canada and abroad.
