Nearly two dozen confirmed shark sightings were reported off the coast of Cape Cod on Saturday as the animals become more and more common in waters along the Massachusetts shoreline, the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy confirmed.

Shark sightings have increased in Cape waters in recent summers. Though the conservancy calls the abundant population a “success story” in conservation, “the public safety concern posed by a growing number of white sharks off our coast is undeniable. We actively work with the MA Division of Marine Fisheries to provide the Cape Cod National Seashore and the towns of Cape Cod, the Islands, and the South Shore with up-to-date scientific data that can be used to enhance public safety,” according to agency.
