Global Shark and Ray Database

We can give a basic overview of the Chondro Census here.

This website facilitates two points of action in support of the SAFE conservation action plan for sharks and rays.

Maintain population data for captive populations
We are requesting collection data from facilities world-wide – accreditation from the Association of Zoos & Aquariums is not required. Research facilities that hold temporary collections are also invited to submit data.

Collect lab data from captive populations
A database of lab test results will provide much-needed insight into animal health. Participants will be able to submit blood test results from the animals in their collection to this web site. References for expected lab values will be made available.
