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.

    Diego Cardeñosa inserting a tiny PIT tag for estimating the population size via mark-recapture - source. Bravo! We got ourselves another minuscule Bull Shark! Kudos to Projects Abroad's Shark supremo Diego for having doggedly persevered and finally managed to hit the right combination of habitat, current, temperature and salinity! May this be the start of many more such exploits? We
