As ocean lovers, we know that tackling two of the biggest threats facing our ocean – marine debris and over-exploitation of shark and ray species – is a real challenge.  Fundraising is the ultimate way you can support ocean protection – fins on and off. Now more than ever before, ocean advocates are taking a stand for conservation.
