Grove Manor Estates is a sponsor of The Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, based in Chatham MA. The Conservancy is responsible for research, education, and conservation of great white sharks on the Cape.
Grove Manor has sponsored a buoy which will be placed along the Cape shoreline with others, marking the locations of acoustic receivers. When white sharks tagged with an acoustic transmitter swim within 100 yards of one of these receivers, the shark-ID, date, and time are recorded. Data from these buoys are then downloaded and used to examine white shark local movements, residency, and habitat use in our waters. This information is also accessible to beachgoers via the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy’s free app, Sharktivity. Users of the app can view shark detections on receivers, past and real-time ‘pings’ for satellite-tagged white sharks, and the locations of confirmed white shark sightings.
This technology not only provides insights into the ecology of this species, but also generates information that might be used to enhance public safety.” You can visit their web site and download the Sharktivity app here:
We are proud to support the efforts of the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy!
