We did it! Five species of highly traded sharks, both manta rays and one species of sawfish were listed under CITES at the conclusion of CoP16 held in March 2013 in Bangkok, Thailand. Read more about these historic decisions for some of the world’s most vulnerable sharks and rays.

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.

Back in March I met with the Australian CITES Representatives to talk about AWARE's Sharks in Peril campaign. I spoke about our petition - back in March 50,000 people had signed demanding sharks get the protection they deserve.

One thing was very clear from this meeting - Divers can play a critical role in lobbying for increased protection. We have voting power - and we can choose to use this power and lobby for change.

Shark finning – slicing off a shark’s fins and discarding the body at sea - has been banned in the European Union (EU) since 2003. Yet, exemptions in the law made a mockery of the ban.

I love to be proactive. I sit at work all day thinking about ways I can spread the word that sharks need our protection. So, I gathered up a team of shark lovers from the PADI office in Bristol as well as some friends from the area and I challenged us all to take the streets of the city centre to let the people of Bristol know that we all need to protect our ocean planet!
