About Chatham Shark Center in Chatham, MA

Sharks are some of the most amazing creatures in the ocean, but they often get misrepresented and misunderstood. Fortunately, the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy (AWSC) is working to change that. AWSC is providing educational materials and programs to school-aged children and the public to help them better understand the vital role sharks play in our marine ecosystem. By connecting people to this important species, AWSC’s education and outreach programs provide the knowledge needed to make sure sharks are respected and protected. The goal of AWSC is to help people and sharks live in harmony with one another, ensuring a healthy and balanced ocean for generations to come.
