.... April 5th is the start of "Holy Week" in the Philippines, otherwise known as Easter. It is also the busiest week of the year on Malapascua Island, home of the famous thresher sharks, when shark lovers descend en masse on the tiny island to get up close and personal with this normally elusive shark. 

What better time to join Project AWARE's Big Shark Shout Out and collect as many signatures as possible!

Staff, interns and volunteers will be trawling the beaches, restaurants and bars armed with the Project AWARE Shark Petition, so if you will be on Malapascua, please come on down and join us!!!
