"As we get closer to the summer and fall seasons, it is important to note that white sharks are making their way back to the Cape Cod coastline. Please remember to follow the shark smart guidelines and to report white shark sightings to the Sharktivity App," Atlantic White Shark Conservancy wrote on Twitter.

Those with the Sharktivity App can report shark sightings and track where sharks are off our coast. The Atlantic White Shark Conservancy Sharktivity App was developed to raise awareness of the white sharks living in our waters.
