Hammerheads are internationally protected but are wantonly killed for their fins and over 90% of their population has disappeared.
Valued at hundreds of dollars per kilogram, the gill raker trade from large rays is leading to their extinction.
Art for Sharks is an initiative where artists can share their ocean message and support ocean conservation.
Learn more at artforsharks.org
Shark Stewards focus in the next decade is to staunch the flow of fins in Malaysia and Singapore.
We have a matching donation campaign until December 31.
Please consider doubling your impact helping save sharks.
