We tend to think that our actions are so small that they don’t matter. But just imagine that each and everyone would think that even the smallest action matter. We would make a huge difference together.

In 2015 the Gili Shark Conservation Project started Unite Gili Air. This project is designed to bring the all the dive shops on Gili Air together to create one comprehensive shark and ray abundance sightings data log.

Our goal is to encourage the Gili Air dive professionals to work together to collect data independently in their dive centers to be submitted and analysed by a network for global shark warriors.

This standardized data collection method is being used throughout the three Gili Islands; Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno, and Gili Air. The Gili Shark Team collects the data sheets once and week submits it into multiple partnering citizen science projects including Gili Eco Trust, SharkBase, eOceans, and Shark Guardian.

Together we can make the difference!
