Condrik is a biodiversity and conservation project developed by three Master's students in Marine Biology: Biodiversity and Conservation at the University of La Laguna, aiming to preserve elasmobranchs - sharks and rays (from now on, "elasmos"). As part of Condrik, the students explore the situation of sharks and rays to promote their protection and create a network of alliances focused on this conservation goal.
Initially, Condrik was funded by Ingenia scholarships. Today, the research program is financed by team members' private funds and a cooperation with the sustainable textile brand Sumatra®.
In addition, AWAKE is funding CONDRIKS outreach in Senegal, where Antonio Sabucu Blaya - crew member of the AWAKEBOAT - is researching the situation of sharks in the coastal region.

CONDRIK BEYOND THE HORIZON
Currently, Condrik transcends borders, having projects in the Canary Islands as well as in Senegal and the Balearic Islands, intending to grow more every day not only as a project but as a scientifically based social awareness movement that, as tides do, reaches beyond the horizon.
HELP CONSERVE SHARKS AND RAYS
Conservation efforts include limiting fishing, educating the public about the manta ray and what it offers to other aquatic life, and implementing punishments for those who intentionally harm them.
WHAT CONDRIK DOES
Condrik carries out Oceanographic Campaigns, both from land and boats, identifying the hotspots along the insular perimeter of Tenerife and the archipelago in general.
Establishing A Network
They establish an archipelagic network of contacts and informants, which allow a considerable volume of sightings to be recorded in the database.
Creation Of A Georeferenced
They create a georeferenced map of sightings based on contacts during campaigns and the information provided by the established network of contacts.
National And International Projects
Condrik implements national and international projects, with training campaigns for marking sharks and rays abroad, contributing the knowledge acquired in conserving these beings in the regional sphere.
