Join Shark Stewards in our eighth year of celebrating sharks and educating the public on the need to save them with Sharktober events. Sharktober celebrates the return of the large white sharks following some 5000 miles of migration, back into our Sanctuary. These events are intended to motivate increased appreciation and protection for sharks and the ocean, including the San Francisco Bay.
