Whitetip Photo-identification Project

Nick Whitney, University of Hawaii at Manoa

In order to learn as much as possible about residence times and movements of Hawaiian whitetip reef sharks, we're collecting whitetip photos from recreational divers and photographers throughout the Hawaiian Islands. If you have - or know someone who has - pictures of whitetips from any of the Islands, you can help us!

Each picture is a piece in the puzzle, and your piece could be a crucial one! Please take the time to email us or send us your whitetip photos. Please check out our FAQ link below for more information.
