The Shark Trust is a small but influential charity, based in Plymouth, that works around the UK and internationally to safeguard the future of sharks and rays.
Vital to a healthy ocean, almost a quarter of the 1000 or so species of shark and ray face a significant extinction threat due primarily to overfishing. We can’t allow ourselves to lose animals that have evolved over 400 million years in the space of a single human generation.
The Shark Trust, celebrating 20 years at the forefront of shark conservation, works to create positive changes so that shark populations can be sustainably managed ensuring that future generations can enjoy the benefits of these vital, valuable and vulnerable animals. The solutions are in our hands, we just need to make the change happen…urgently.
Please help by supporting our cause. It’s not always the easiest thing to raise money for but a little money can go a long way.
