Because The Outcome Is Up To All Of Us
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.

Ending the Sale and Trade of Shark Fins in Florida
Shark finning and the global trade of fins is the driving force behind the slaughter of 70-100 million sharks per year. Florida has recently become the hub for the trade of shark fins in the US. A bi-partisan effort is underway to stop that once and for all.
How can sharks benefit from their “star power”?
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. We need a new approach.
Reducing the Demand for Shark Products
The value of the global trade in shark products is estimated at 1 billion US dollars per year.
