We, as a society, love our monsters. And perhaps none are demonized and feared more than sharks. With Shark Week starting again next week, you might be surprised to hear the Shark Angels perspective on the programming. Or maybe not – since the Angels are always, like sharks, in the middle of controversy. Simply put, there are bigger issues facing sharks and the positive aspects of the week prevail over the bad.
Shark lovers around the world are encouraged to take a shot of them with a shark - underwater or topside, hash tag it (#sharkselfie) and post it on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook!
Shark Angels empowers local action through online tools and a collaborative, positive network. This recent story out of Oklahoma should inspire everyone to take a bit of action in their hometowns. See a shark product on the shelves or menu? Contact us! We can help you remove it with a library of letters, educational materials, how-to guides and expertise. One person can make a big difference for sharks - and the Shark Angels can make that just a little easier.
