Not every Flying Sharks day involves collections or transports. Some days are spent chatting to kids about… Shark conservation.
Because sharks are getting decimated by commercial fisheries, and not just in remote parts of the world. European fleets are also to blame for this catastrophic decline, which is particularly serious with Mako sharks, shown in the main picture.
Did you know that Mako shark females mature at around 150 kilos, and they are regularly harvested under 50 kg by commercial Portuguese and Spanish longliners targetting Swordfish?
This is but one of the many reasons why a significant part or our time, and a decent chunk of money, are devoted to education and conservation efforts.
It is complety necessary to create this awareness about what is happening with sharks and take action.
We have, today, good organizations doing this work.
So, we therefore encourage you to do something too.
And we encourage our friends and clients to donate a residual fraction of their invoice to Research & Conservation efforts.
Because there’s nothing scarier than an ocean without sharks.
