Our Mission:

Restoring Ocean Health & Saving Sharks

Shark species are going extinct, and with them the important ocean ecosystems humans rely on for our own health.

Oceans in Crisis: Why Save Sharks?

Sharks keep the oceans healthy. We rely on the oceans for over half our oxygen, and the oceans are a major carbon sink. Saving sharks can keep us breathing and mitigate the impacts caused by climate change.

Save a Shark, Protect the Planet

Shark Stewards is an international non-profit dedicated to saving sharks and ocean habitat. Our work introducing shark fin trade bans, regulating fisheries and supporting marine protection has saved millions of sharks over 16 years of campaigning.
