Why  should  you care about sharks? Due to human activity, global warming, overfishing and plastic pollution all have put our planet’s ocean in great danger. Sharks are dying at a much higher rate so that marine ecosystems can’t recover quick enough.

Science has also taught us that sharks play a vital role in maintaining the marine balance and the health of the ocean waters across the entire planet. However, between 63 and 273 million sharks are killed annually. Research has already shown that some shark populations have already decreased by approximately 90% to 99%!

Plastic pollution in the ocean is a global problem, not only for the entire marine life but including human beings.

People and marine protection organisations around the world are joining efforts in many different initiatives to help to reduce the direct and indirect anthropogenic causes of declining shark populations, and the survival of our ocean’s biodiversity.

Today, you too can do something more! By Joining our event with many other volunteers, you can also bring your own solutions to help control and reduce this problem!

Please join SEI Association and become a member of your shark friends’ family.
