finning

Jul. 15/14

It’s official Finathon month! Scuba divers are swimming to end finning as part of the Project AWARE Finathon showing they are FINatical about protecting sharks.  To date divers have raised nearly $20,000 this year. Thank You!

As you show your support for shark conservation, your friends and family may ask you why sharks need protecting. I caught up with Ania Budziak, Associate Director of Science and Policy to help get you started with probably the most emotional issue when it comes to shark conservation- finning.

We are emptying the ocean of sharks. As a diver and a global citizen acting locally, you can play a critical role in saving sharks. Here’s why your actions to protect sharks are so important:

Nearly one out of five shark species is classified by the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) as Threatened with extinction. That doesn’t even include hundreds of species (almost half of all sharks) whose population status cannot be assessed because of lack of information. Scientists warn that, in actuality, a third of sharks might already be threatened.
