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.

Ending 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.

The Growing Demand for Shark Products

The value of the global trade in shark products is estimated at 1 billion US dollars per year.

Most of these products are legal to buy, sell and trade, with the exception of shark fins in only a handful of US States and Pacific Island Nations. 

Follow our guide on how to approach manufacturers that use sharks in their products and how to educate those around you.

Driftnets were already banned in many countries, and only one fishery remained in the United States, in federal waters off the coast of California.

UPDATE September 2018: Governor Jerry Brown signed the bill to ban driftnets! THANK YOU Governor Brown!

Congratulations to everyone that has worked so hard over the years to make this happen! Proof that grassroots activism works!

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. We need a new approach.
