Shark Angels


The Shark Angels are leading a positive, contagious movement to save sharks – and the oceans. It´s a passionate, global community that believes in the power of education, media and local grassroots campaigns. They raise awareness to the critical issues, educate children, change perspectives, and empower and connect advocates to act locally to save sharks and the critical ecosystems they support.

Sadly, over the last twenty years, we have been witness to a silent mass extinction of the ocean’s top predators. And while some shark populations are down 90%, up to 73,000,000 sharks will be killed this year. That’s over 10,000 an hour.

Tired of sitting by and witnessing a looming extinction with global ramifications, the Shark Angels are taking action. Instead of feeling helpless, the Shark Angels, every day, are taking on what seemingly very few others are willing to do.

The Shark Angels Are Focused on:

  • Defending the sharks and serving as their guardian angels – and a much needed voice.
  • Leading a worldwide movement to save sharks by inspiring others through their own actions.
  • Supporting a globally connected, though locally inspired, movement and fueling that through a rich set of tools, community, collaboration and education.
  • Bringing the issues facing sharks into public consciousness – through graphic but engaging online, viral and broadcast media
  • Improving the image of sharks – removing a major barrier to their survival.
  • Encouraging and empowering the world’s youth to take back their sharks.
  • Going into the field to gather the compelling media necessary to bring about change.
  • Amplifying the disconnected conservation efforts by working together – and merging many different approaches to conservation. Developing regional angels that are a talented, committed, and cohesive team united by a positive passion and a common mission.

 

The Shark Angels believe that kids have an enormous voice – and the power to change the world. So they focus their efforts on education in awareness, developing a new generation of Shark Angels from Tonga to California.

The Shark Angels have already developed presentations, videos, activity books and conducted presentations around the globe – reaching thousands of kids.
