FACT: 100 Million sharks are killed every year. FACT: without these amazing animals, the marine ecosystem would collapse. FACT: Sharks have been in our waters for 450 million years and are nearing extinction unless we act NOW!

Humans have feared sharks due to untrue common beliefs and this has affected how the world perceive sharks, however THEY ARE NOT THE ENEMY. You are more likely to die from a vending machine than experiencing a shark attack, FACT. Sharks don’t have a voice and should not be treated differently to animals in need that are able to attract attention through their cute, friendly appearances; due to this, people are reluctant to help sharks when they need it. Sharks are magnificent creatures and with over 450 species in our oceans, they have become a great interest for many marine biologists and ordinary people like myself who find them to be incredible and misunderstood creatures. However, the likelihood of the next generation being able to see or learn new information about sharks and become educated about the predator that controls two thirds of the planet is questionable unless you help and act NOW!

This is where I come in! My name is Stephanie and I am hoping to be a volunteer next year in the Fiji Shark Conservation Project. Not only has it been a dream of mine to work in marine conservation and work with such incredible animals but it is so important that volunteers enter the project in order to assist scientists to conserve the 8 species of sharks in Fiji waters and raise awareness about the need for shark conservation around the world! I will be:

-Assisting specialists with monitoring shark behavior and establishing ways to ensure the safety of the future of sharks and the ecosystem in Fiji’s waters.

-Educating locals about the importance of sharks in the ecosystem and raise awareness of the disgusting practice of shark-finning to create a generation that respects sharks and eliminate the common misconceptions of sharks today.

- Working on a shark nursery habitat project to ensure healthy development of baby sharks in order to increase population.

 -I will also be helping with reforestation and plant enough mangrove trees to compensate for my carbon footprint created by my travel to Fiji.

 

I will be making a difference with my contribution and so will you if you make a contribution. You will be helping an amazing cause and will be contributing towards preventing the extinction of one of the ocean’s most incredible animals.

If you have time please watch Sharkwater (below) this film really opened my eyes to the suffering of sharks due to the shark-finning industry.

Please, please, please donate.
