The Shark Foundation has been committed to the protection and research of sharks since 1997 and sees itself as the sharks' lobby.

Sharks are not a threat to humans!

The Shark Foundation was established to actively protect and research endangered shark species and and preserve their natural habitats.

The  Foundation's purpose is to contribute to the protection and preservation of sharks and their natural habitats through information, its own projects and through the active support of third parties.

In this sense the Foundation supports scientific work domestically and abroad both financially and in an advisory function. Through such public relations activities as organizing and carrying out courses, lectures, touring exhibits, as well as a show of presence in the mass media, etc., a broad segment of the public is to be informed of the threat to many shark species and their habitats.

The guy who shot this was the only guy with a big camera. So much for Tigers being nothing
  • Sustainable Shark Fins - encore!
    Indeed! Hah! I totally missed this when it came out. Please do take the time to watch it. And now, read this op-ed by KT Tan. Same old same old - remember this post?  There you will also find links to excellent answers by Shark Savers to those allegations.
