Donations go to identifying and tracking reef and other sharks in and around marine protected areas in the Pacific, monitoring and providing data to increase permanent protection. We are protecting important marine habitat and generating policy to stop the shark fin trade and fishing sharks in west and central Pacific. In the USA we are introducing shark fin trade bans and increasing shark protection against unsustainable fisheries and supporting two national marine sanctuaries to keep sharks swimming.

Your $100 US tax-deductible donation goes to saving a shark that would be killed for its fins, and supports dive ecotourism-based citizen science training and data collection at our conservation centers.
