“I’ve seen the impact of the [Great Elephant Census], now I’m supporting Global FinPrint to help save sharks. ”
— Paul G. Allen
Paul knew what was needed: clear information that documented where sharks were in trouble, where they were doing well, and where taking action would have the greatest impact. So, right after he provided similar, critical data by undertaking the Great Elephant Census (which surveyed Africa’s elephant populations), Paul threw his support behind the Global FinPrint initiative. “I’ve seen the impact of the [Great Elephant Census], now I’m supporting Global FinPrint to help save sharks,” he tweeted to announce his support of the world’s first-ever global census of reef sharks.
