Hundreds of supporters shouted for sharks and took AWARE's shark petition to the streets helping reach an impressive total of 100,000 signatures. These signatures give a stronger, united voice to push for trade protection for the world's most vulnerable shark species.

I love visiting Malaysia! Firstly everyone is so friendly. Secondly everyone is so generous.

During the recent Malaysia International Dive Expo, divers grabbed their pens and signed our Shark Petition - we collected over 700 signatures at the show. They also put their hands in their BCD's and together raised $1,000 for Project AWARE.

What was more encouraging was the passion of the Malaysian dive community to take action, support the new AWARE and be active.
