Help shark research while diving Mexico’s enchanting “Little Galapagos”

Socorro Island, part of the Revillagigedo Archipelago, is recognized as one of the top diving destinations in the world, and for good reason: it’s a hub for pelagic wildlife encounters, like giant mantas, schools of tuna, dolphins, humpback whales, whale sharks, and several other shark species. The Archipelago is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to the rich marine life that take refuge on and around the islands.
