Dear Ocean and Shark Loving Team,
Sharktober is almost over after 15 events reaching approximately 7.000 people with partners, at schools in the immediate Bay Area, and Farallon Island Expeditions. But if you love sharks there is more left!
This Friday, please join me for a talk and film at the Pacifica Community Center- hosted by our partners the Pacifica Beach Coalition. Our US campaign to fight to stop the shark fin trade moves forward at the Dive Show DEMA in Las Vegas 11/16-19 with LUSH Cosmetics, mermaids and sharks! Lets recruit supporters, volunteers and donors to Vegas and fight for sharks and support the proposed US Shark Fin Trade Elimination Act.
Thank you for your time and your passion for a healthy ocean!
David McGuire, Director
Sharktober is a celebration of the return of the white sharks to our sanctuary after their long migration. Our Northeast Pacific white shark population is slowly rebounding from overfishing. However, many species including the Silky Sharks and Thresher Sharks just listed under CITES Appendix II, and 1/3 of open ocean sharks are at great risk of extinction. We must continue striving to protect other sharks and rays from overfishing and the sale of body parts like fins and gill rakers.
