POSITIVE CHANGE FOR SHARKS

We believe that the best way to safeguard the future of sharks is through a solutions-based approach that promotes positive change.
 

HOW CAN WE CREATE POSITIVE CHANGE FOR SHARKS?

Like a jigsaw, there are many pieces that make up the big picture - a positive future for sharks relies on all the pieces coming together:

  • GOVERNMENTS – need to make changes in policy, collaborate and enforce laws to ensure good practice.
     
  • INDUSTRY – need to drive sustainable practice and responsible trade for shark products and seafood.
     
  • SCIENTISTS – need to provide an evidence base for conservation planning and fisheries management.
     
  • NGO’s & CHARITIES – need to provide specialist advice, communicate, campaign and work together for change.

We believe collaboration and partnership is vital to safeguarding shark, skate and ray populations around the world.
