Currently the BIOGES Institute of the University of Las Palmas in collaboration with Fundación Biodiversidad and the support of several Institutions including OCEANA, Zoological Society of London, Fundación Phillip Cousteau, and many more, a Program called POSEIDON has been developed. The aim of this program is to monitor the marine biodiversity in the Canary Islands using citizen science. What does this mean? Everybody can participate and register species observed while snorkeling or diving. 

Angel Shark Project is part of this great program. Based on scuba divers sightings, this project will lead to an assessment of the conservation status of the critically endangered (IUCN RED LIST) Angel Shark (Squatina squatina).
