Because The Outcome Is Up To All Of Us

 

We Have A Hopeful Vision

 
 

Sharks are the Guardians of the Ocean. They take care of a system that is so vital to our quality of life and, ultimately, to our survival. Humanity has not been good to sharks. But we can change that now. We can stop the destruction, reverse the damage, take a stand for what is right, and fight against what hurts us all.

We must focus on action, and change the way we treat sharks and the ocean.  

Together we RESPECT, PROTECT and TAKE ACTION.

Stop the Trade of Shark Fins

We need your help to continue this fight

Shark finning and the global trade of fins is the driving force behind the slaughter of 70-100 million sharks per year.

Powerful commercial interests are blocking the progress of protective measures. This is one of the most important battles we are facing.

Ban Driftnets

california must take action against these curtains of death

The driftnet fishery is responsible for widespread destruction of marine wildlife. For every swordfish caught, an estimated seven other marine animals are entangled in nets and often injured or killed. 

Driftnets are already banned in many countries, and only one driftnet fishery remains in the United States - in federal waters off the coast of California. Help us change that now.

Shark Films

A reality check

Blockbuster horror films about menacing sharks are here to stay. They have and will continue to generate billions for the entertainment industry. For years, the conservation community has tried to take the high road and distance themselves from films that perpetrate the monster image. It hasn't worked. We need a new approach.
