Thank you! Shark Stewards works to restore ocean health by saving sharks from overfishing and the shark fin trade, and by protecting critical marine habitat in marine protected areas. We fight for sharks and ocean health through education from California to China, and applying trade data and science to shark protection and marine protection policy.
