Protect Sharks Today!

Sharks are in decline and Europe is a major part of the problem. Project AWARE are calling all dive centres to show their support for shark conservation to protect sharks today. Global support is urgently needed for this campaign to restore and conserve threatened shark populations. No matter where you live or dive – European Shark Week 8 – 14 October is a chance to take action and participate in shark protection.


How Can I Get Involved?

  • 1. Sign a Shark Fin supporting the slogan “Every Fin Counts“. Join our petition to help make a difference in the fight to improve European fishing policy. Signatures will be sent to Joe Borg, the European Commissioner responsible for Fisheries and Maritime Affairs, to support the creation of a European Union Conservation Plan for sharks.
  • 2. Encourage others to act now to save sharks. Involve your customers, friends, family and colleagues to get involved in the effort to conserve sharks. Email Project AWARE for a template email to get everyone on board.
  • 3. To send an E-card or download a paper Fin click here.

Project AWARE is a member of the Shark Alliance, a coalition of non-governmental organizations dedicated to restoring and conserving shark populations by improving European fishing policy. By supporting European Shark Week we can demonstrate our support for shark conservation across Europe and the world.



Thank you for your support,

-The Scubafish Team and Project Aware
