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

TheĀ  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.
