Shark Stewards is dedicated to saving threatened sharks through science, education and advocacy.

Sharks are symbols of ocean health. This health is declining and we must restore ocean health for the future of humanity. Our Mission is to restore ocean health by saving sharks and protecting critical ocean habitat.

Shark Stewards promotes sound stewardship for sharks, and all marine life.

Our campaigns e.g. the Healthy Oceans Initiative and the San Francisco Shark Sanctuary are directed towards raising awareness on shark conservation and marine ecosystem protection. We advocate policy including the banning of shark finning, and regulating the shark fin trade in the USA and the Pacific Rim. Our Shark Watch educational and outreach efforts in the San Francisco Bay brings underserved youth to the ocean. Our sister organization Sea Stewards reaches a world audience through the production of ocean documentary films and short media.

Shark Stewards is a non profit project of the Earth Island Institute.
