THANK YOU FOR REPORTING!
We rely on sightings data to help us understand key features of basking shark behavior and movement patterns. To do so, we work collaboratively with the National Biodiversity Data Centre and the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group to ensure that each sighting is recorded and stored in a single national database. Reported sightings are freely accessible for use by research groups and used to inform marine-based environmental impact assessments.
