Rapid Assessment Toolkit for Sharks (RAT)

World Wildlife Fund will support completion of a Rapid Assessment Toolkit for sharks that will collate simplified solutions to empower fisheries management authorities to improve basic understanding of shark and ray populations and stock health and to develop long-term datasets, with a view to improving the long-term sustainability and management of these species. SCF funding will be used to support the trials of DNA data acquisition in SCF priority countries, Papua New Guinea, Malaysia, and Indonesia, and the final development of the RAT Guide.

Through collaborative partnerships, we support innovative projects that protect vulnerable wildlife from extinction, while restoring balance to threatened ecosystems and communities. Our work is divided into six main program areas – Wildlands Conservation, Oceans Conservation, Climate Change, Indigenous Rights, Transforming California, and Innovative Solutions.
