Shark Trust Patron - GORDON RAMSAY (OBE)

Gordon Ramsay.Celebrity chef, television personality and restaurateur, Gordon Ramsay, joined the Shark Trust as a patron in 2010. Well known for programs such as Hell's Kitchen, The F Word and Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares, he also presented the documentary SHARKBAIT raising public awareness about the shark fin trade as part of Channel 4’s Big Fish Fight.

SHARKBAIT was aired on Sunday 16th January 2011, generating a phenomenal amount of support for our Stop Shark Finning Campaign.

“In 2010 I had the opportunity to make a programme called SHARKBAIT, which exposed the cruel practice of shark finning as well as the often secretive and destructive industry that surrounds it. Up until then I had been unaware of the completely horrific and totally unnecessary practice, which could lead to the extinction of sharks in the future. As a result and ever since, I have been a patron of the Shark Trust, who do great work in raising awareness and campaigning for the protection of these beautiful creatures. I'm honoured to support this cause and hope that together we can all do what we can to help these endangered species remain in our waters for future generations."
