We believe in the preservation of our worlds precious resources and that through the protection of the oceans apex predators marine ecosystem balance can be maintained for the benefit of all living things on earth.

Research

 

Research on sharks has been slow and inconsistent. There are two main reasons; one is the difficulties of studying them, and two, the lack of funding. 

Conservation

 

Sharks play a vital role in our ecosystem as part of a complex system of checks and balances.

Education

 

Becoming educated about sharks is the first step in understanding shark behavior and how to interact with them.

Advocacy

 

Shark research and collected data about shark movements and numbers can be used to advocate greater protection.
