Eggcase Hunt Community driven conservation

Our eggcase hunts are great way to get the public engaged with our local shark and ray species, but they also provide important scientific data.

What is an Eggcase hunt?

Many species of sharks and ray lay eggs, and the eggcases from these guys regularly wash up on beaches once the pups have hatched. Eggcase hunts involve searching beaches for these cases, which can be identified by species.

We upload all of our eggcase records to the Shark Trust as part of a national eggcase monitoring project that maps the distribution and number of different species around the UK and beyond.

  • We don't just survey for eggcases, we clean the beaches too!
