There is hope! The Canary Islands have been identified as a unique stronghold for on species, the Angelshark, and angel shark “hotspots” have been found in other parts of their range. Help us to better understand and conserve these species by reporting your angel shark sighting to the map.

Count The Angels 2021

Count The Angels is an annual event created to promote the conservation of the Angelshark in the Canary Islands. The Count the Angels data, alongside regular sightings submitted to the map and visual ID tagging data, help us to understand the ecology and abundance of this iconic species.

Count The Angels is completed over four days, to coordinate divers across the Canary Islands to dive at the same time to search for Angelsharks.

In 2021 we are completing Count the Angels on 4, 5, 6 & 7 December
