Sharktoberfest- Name the Shark Contest

August 17, 2018 @ 8:00 am - September 29, 2018 @ 5:00 pm

Ni hao!  Name the China Shark.

Shark Stewards visited China in August and the first week of September meeting with youth and ocean leaders to catalyze a shark and ocean revolution. Together with this nameless shark ambassador, we traveled throughout much of the country, including shark fin capitol: Guangzhou, documenting and learning how to save sharks at the endpoint of most of the shark fin trade. We met with local ocean lovers and are developing the groundwork to raise ocean awareness in China, including hosting an ocean film festival in 2019.

Enter the contest to name our shark and win a trip to the Farallon Islands for Sharktober! We will reveal the name at our Sharktobefest at the Sanctuary September 29.
This, as yet nameless, friend joined me, doing cameos at the Great Wall, at fishmongers and with kids sharing on social media.
