Calling out to all instructors and dive guides working in the Red Sea this summer.

Help us to help the sharks. Marine biologist Angela Warrior is here as part of her Red Sea Shark Warriors program to assess the number of sharks being seen in the Red Sea this summer.

Dive guides may have noted that their numbers have been decreasing over the years, and this needs to be registered and addressed.

In the thresher shark capital of the world....

 

.... 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!

Global Shark Survey

The Global Shark Survey is extracting diver observation data from the records stored in dive log books around the world. Simple records, hours underwater, sharks seen, when & where.  Remember zero sharks seen is a very significant number - send us all the dives where you did NOT see sharks.

On Thursday 19th May 2011, we took our shark petition to the streets of Bristol City Centre. We had so much fun! PADI colleagues and Phil from West Country Divers, a local dive center, also joined us. We asked as many Broadmead shoppers as possible to sign the Project AWARE "Give Sharks a Fighting Chance" petition campaign. The response was great and even though some people didn't want to sign it, we managed to, if not change their minds, at least make them think about the plight of our sharks.
