You helped us make history in Australia when we backed the creation of the world’s largest network of marine parks in November 2012. This marked a giant stride forward in ocean protection made possible by the overwhelming support shown by ocean lovers from around the world. Thank you!
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.
