European Shark Week 2011
European Shark Week 2011 took place from 15 -23 October and was another huge success thanks to the many aquariums, passionate individuals and groups who organised over 150 events in 19 countries across Europe.
Supporters hosted shark classes, colouring competitions and swim-a-thons for children, shark dives, demonstrations and lectures. Many more of our supporters spread the message on Facebook, Twitter and blogs, all to encourage as many people as possible to learn about shark conservation and help Make the Push to protect Europe’s sharks by signing the petition.
We’ve now collected and counted all the petitions from this year’s European Shark Week and in total we’ve received at least 165,000 signatures from all 27 EU member states. In addition, we have received hundreds of photos and many short videos of people taking part in shark week activities and asking their minister to Make the Push.
In March 2012, the Shark Trust met with UK Fisheries Minister, Richard Benyon to handover these signatures.
