The dedicated supporters of the CSULB Shark Lab have been integral in keeping student research alive and productive. They enable us to continue to answer critical questions relevant to fisheries conservation, shark biology and marine environmental health. Using cutting edge technology such as telemetry is quite expensive and the costs of supplies like acoustic transmitters can quickly become out of reach for most student grants. In addition, finding funds to acquire new cutting edge technology is very difficult these days with continued cuts to State and Federal science budgets.
Therefore, we rely on our generous supporters to help us acquire these vital tools needed to train the next generation of marine biologists. Contributions to the Shark Lab have come in many different forms, including funds for computers, telemetry equipment, student research grants, student travel funds, and scholarships. There are many ways you can help and contribute.
