Now, more than ever, sharks need guardian angels. And those angels don't idly stand by and wait for the world to change, we use our passion and positive energy to fuel a grassroots movement around the world. It is time to give sharks a chance!
Finding each other through their shared passion, the Shark Angels are coming together from all corners of the globe to start a positive movement to save sharks. Through witnessing small wins we have each individually become inspired to make a bigger difference. We have realized, as individuals we are strong but unified we are mighty.
We believe the messaging around conservation needs to change - and most people are turned off by the constant gloom and doom, becoming overwhelmed with the magnitude of the problem. We are alienating the very people we need to engage with grim statistics, guilt and blame. We also believe that people want to make a real difference with their own two hands - not just donate to a distant cause - and are completely energized when given a chance to do something they care about - locally, in their own backyard. And, kids need to be mobilized... they are our future!
We also believe that there are many different ways to save sharks from finning - there is no silver bullet - and that we absolutely CAN work together to do so. A lot of good work is being done, but often those efforts are splintered and not effective as they could be. Thanks to the the differences in beliefs, the politics of conservation and the fact many of us duplicate efforts or spend more time fighting one another than the true bad guys, we are losing our true battle… and thousands of sharks are killed each day. The Shark Angels want to change all that.
Conservation can indeed be positive and participating can be rewarding and fun. Our passion is contagious and magnifies exponentially when we find one another. And if we set aside our collective differences, focusing on our uniting strengths, we can start making a huge impact on the health of the shark populations throughout the world.We aim to join our efforts and unite everyone around a new view of not only conservation but also sharks to ensure that they survive to play their important role in maintaining our oceans – and possibly, even in humankind’s own survival. We measure our accomplishments in the minds we change and sharks we save.
And, the Shark Angels are making a real difference, serving as an inspiration to children and adults all over the world - proving this approach to shark conservation is both sorely needed and contagious. Ultimately, to us, serving as inspiration is our greatest accomplishment.
Whether we pull sharks from longlines, expose an underground shark fin trade, stop a shark fishing contest, increase dive tourism in a heavily fished area, implement an enforcement program that monitors catch in a Marine Protected Area, conduct scientific research to identify an area where sharks need protection, or help people understand that sharks are not the monsters they seem, we can all make a huge difference and save the lives of countless sharks.
