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.
The 4 Core Sectors of Guardians of the Oceans
Every sector has taking action at its heart. Each contributes to the overall goal and together, they create an ecosystem that can grow without limits.
To build the structure that supports the movement. A system that brings us together, that gives us a voice and enables us to act.
Unity & Support
Shark Allies is shifting gears. We are moving away from the old-fashioned, narrow structure of a traditional non-profit organization to an open forum that will be unlimited in its potential growth. Creating a place for a community of Guardians, a tribe of activists united in their desire to take action.
Fueling the movement
Raising funds for conservation projects is a struggle that can turn the difficult into the impossible. The money question should be answered in new and creative ways. We are developing several new strategies for long-term funding for shark and ocean causes.
PR & Media
Changing the conversation
Our continued efforts to raise awareness and educate the public have brought many great results. The public needs to know about the issues in order to change habits and support conservation measures. Our goal is to broaden the approach and reach even more people.
Strategy & Action
For years we have been working with great success on passing legislation to stop the trade of shark fins and to increase the protected areas around the world. A new strategy is needed to continue and increase the intensity of this work and to take measures to the next level.
