The Atlantic Great White Conservancy, an organization devoted to shark conservation and ecology, has designed and launched an innovative new shark spotting app that is designed to help beachgoers who spot sharks to report their findings so that authorities and experts can make use of them for the sake of research and ecological intervention.

What makes this app such a smart intervention is the fact that it allows users to share their original shark sightings but also monitor the movements of great white sharks that have been tagged with location tags in the past. This will enable them to stay away from sections of beach that could potentially pose shark-related threats.

This shark spotting app is definitely a welcome innovation considering that it could be leveraged to save the lives of both humans and sharks.
