Sharks fill a very unique biological niche in the ocean. Despite what the movies might tell you, sharks aren't mindless killing machines and they have a vital role in maintaining the health of our seas. I think that it's really important that we put in the effort to conserve sharks so they can swim in our oceans for many years to come.

I'm aiming to swim 100 lengths (2500m / ~1.5 miles) and raise £100 for it. I will complete my swim on 29/12/2021.

I have now reached (and far surpassed!) my goal of raising £100! I would like to say thank you very, very much to everybody who donated. You've all been really generous and helped me and the sharks loads! Thank you all so much!!  :-) Alec Kirby
