Ocean enthusiasts (scientists, scuba divers, surfers, or simply those with a love for the ocean) have been exposed to information regarding the drastic decline of shark populations and the scientific ramifications of that decline through a number of increasingly visible sources in the past few years. Unsatisfied with limiting our audience, we sought a method to try and go a step further and broaden our reach beyond this market to new people. Our hope is to create this calendar that highlights these fascinating creatures and the institutions that study them, and also to inspire people to become more educated and involved in the movement to save our sharks (and in doing so, save our oceans).
All proceeds from calendar sales will be donated to our Fin Free campaign, a global movement to push and support shark friendly legislation and our Youth Shark Education campaign, which seeks to inform and inspire the next generation of conservationists. All contributions to the cause are greatly appreciated.
If you are a business and are interested in selling our calendars please email: cheryl (at) sharkangels.com for wholesale prices and more details.

A response from Julie Anderson regarding the Western Australian proposal to destroy sharks that are found swimming too close to beaches:
It is hard to believe with all we know about sharks, including their dwindling numbers, their critical role in our oceans, and the small risk they actually pose to humans in the grand scheme of things, that the archaic concept of killing these animals solely or our “protection” still exists. And that a country like Australia, whose citizens are known for their enlightened, balanced view of nature. would declare war on sharks – giving the approval to kill any sharks swim near beaches in Western Australia. Even the protected and endangered white shark. All this in a medieval response to five deaths due to shark bites in the past year. At a cost of far more than the $6.35 million that the Australian government is investing in the program. It is absolutely shameful.

Sharks kill fewer than 4 humans on average each year, while humans kill an estimated 100 million sharks annually.
Sharks have been honed to perfection, having existed on this planet for over 400 million years.
Sharks play a vital role at the top of the food chain by maintaining balance in the oceans.
* An estimated 73 million sharks are killed each year (that works out to more than 10,000 sharks per hour).
Shark fins are tasteless, and may contain high levels of toxic methyl-mercury.
Only a small number of countries have banned finning - many more need to be encouraged to enact legislation.
Many people assume that because they don’t eat shark fin soup – then they can’t possibly be contributing to the demise of the sharks and rays.
