The mission of the Gili Shark Conservation Project is to create a research and education station in Indonesia where people from around the world can make a difference during their holiday. We work together with multiple local and international organizations and researchers. The more we share, the more we have. That’s why all the data sets we collect are available FREE to anyone who is interested.

A simple donation can make all the difference to our grassroots project here on our little island paradise. Big or small,  100% of your contribution will go to helping us conduct our research and analysis programs as well as our community outreach and education projects in local schools and villages in northern Lombok.

  • $25 could help us buy the equipment needed to run FREE recycling workshops for the community in Gili Air, educating people on the importance of reducing, reusing, and recycling.
