Join us on the 24th November at the Royal Geographical Society, London, for an inspiring evening of talks, presentations and stories to celebrate all things sharks. We've got an outstanding and exciting group of speakers, the very best in shark conservation, science and advocacy, to keep you on the edge of your seat. We'll be teasing you with the announcement of speakers over the next few months, so check this page regularly. As well as following us on our social media pages, honestly you will not want to miss this event! 

The evening will also host a brand new, not seen before, exclusive shark art exhibition, giving you first insight to an exciting and ambitious new project for 2022. We’re bringing together artists from a variety of backgrounds who are passionate about wildlife, conservation, and using art as a tool for positive change. On the night we’ll be exhibiting their work, and you’ll get a chance to meet some of the artists. 

We look forward to celebrating sharks with you and sharing some big news! 

2022 is the Shark Trust 25th anniversary, and this will be celebrated throughout the evening. Our very own Ali Hood, Director of Conservation will be giving an exclusive presentation, on the latest shark conservation and the importance of the next 10 years.
