We Have A Hopeful Vision

 
 Guardians of the Ocean logo

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.

Stop the Trade of Shark Fins

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

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 perpetuate the monster image.  It hasn't worked.

It is time for a radical new approach. Lets embrace what we cannot change and use the star power of sharks to fuel shark conservation.
