Guardians of the Ocean

We have a hopeful vision.

We believe, that together, we can radically change the way we treat sharks and the ocean. That we will find ways to tackle the issues and that you will choose to be one of the people that will help build this movement. To be an ally to sharks, to stand shoulder-to-shoulder in the effort to protect the ocean. To stop the destruction, to reverse the damage, to take a stand for what is right, and fight against what hurts us all.

Sharks are the Guardians of the ocean. They do a tremendous job, taking care of a system that is so vital to our quality of life, and, ultimately to our survival. We fail to honor them, and instead, we are destroying sharks and everything else that is alive in our oceans. We haven’t exactly been the best stewards of this planet. But what matters is that there is an alternative path to the one we are currently on.

We can draw the line right now and say

“TODAY is the day we turn this thing around!”

If we focus on ACTION we can change the conditions one step, one milestone at a time. The goals are clear. We just need to find the courage and unity to move forward. Anyone, regardless of their age, nationality, religion, political persuasion and education can participate in this movement. We will work hard to lead the charge, but we need you and many others to truly empower this movement.

 

You are a GUARDIAN.

Together we RESPECT, PROTECT and TAKE ACTION.

 

 

Our mission.

To create a structure that is capable of supporting the movement. A system that will bring us together, that will give us a voice and enable us to act. 

 
 Guardians Community

Guardians Community

If we want the movement to gain momentum and sustain energy over a long period of time, we need a tribe of supporters that work in unison. Having a community of Guardians collaborating will be more powerful than small non-profits work on individual goals. The community is at the pumping heart of all Guardians missions.

 Agency for Sharks

Media Sharks

We have a powerful tool that has not been utilized enough in a positive way - the entertainment industry and the news media. Sharks are super stars. Fighting the exploitation of sharks a villains is pointless, but figuring out how to collaborate can be of great benefit to everyone involved.

Strategy & Action

Most of the time, the heavy lifting of ocean conservation doesn't take place in the ocean. It happens by working with legislators, negotiating with authorities, convincing governments and fighting commercial interests. We need to engage and support an "A-Team" for sharks that will continue to drive these efforts forward.
