We need your help, learn the threats and challenges effecting sharks and the oceans. Your actions make all the difference!
Check your Labels-
Read labels on your household items and ensure they contain no shark ingredients; generally found in cosmetics and supplement items. By boycotting products that use shark materials you decrease fishing demand and save more sharks in the future.
Reduce your "Fin"print-
Reducing the amount of seafood you consume helps, but if you do purchase seafood, ensure you aren't eating any threatened or endangered fish species and always check that they are captured via sustainable/responsible ways.
Reduce, Reuse, and (proper) Recycling to ensure more materials like plastics and harmful chemicals are disposed of responsibly and stay out of our oceans.
Additionally, avoid using single-use plastics (items like plastic or paper cups, bags, straws, or plastic utensils). Bring that reusable coffee mug to work or pack your groceries home in a reusable bag over using plastic or paper alternatives.
Sharing is Caring-
Using your social media account to spread awareness and brag about the cool gear you just got from Sphyrnas, helps build a conservation network. Sign e-petitions or follow key legislation or representatives that are making strides to protect and save our environment.
Just Keep Swimming-
Scuba diving, sea tours and other Eco-tourism activities bring in billions of dollars across the globe; and you guessed it- the stars of show are sharks. So don't hesitate in renting that paddle board or snorkel and exploring the ocean ecosystem on your next vacation.
Eco-tourism promotes protection of reefs and other natural habitats for a host of flora and fauna that would otherwise be threatened or even extinct.
Gettin' Fishy with It -
