Shark Angels around Canada and the world are working hard on legislation to ban shark fin. However, opponents are claiming that banning the shark fin only is a sign of racism, as we are focusing on a ban of only the fins and not the rest of the shark. Many wonder why not ban all shark products? And others wonder if we are truly focusing on condemning a culture? On the contrary - Shark Angels believe shark finning is a world issue with world ramifications. And, quite simply, we are focusing our targeted efforts on the biggest threat facing sharks.
Layang Layang is one of the best dive locations to witness hammerheads and other sharks and it is because of this that the Shark Angels and World Wide Dive and Sail are teaming up together to head out there on a journey of scientific discovery and conservation work - in one of the only areas in the world where shark fishing has been banned. What's even better than this is that you can join them!
Shark Angels has long been active in the surfing community. In fact, we premiered our first short film at the Wavescapes festival in Cape Town four years ago. We also took several famous and seriously influential surfers diving with sharks. We’ve been working with surfers ever since – we believe they are great advocates for the cause particularly once their perspectives have changed, thanks to encounters with our finned friends. We even have our own line of surfboards. Of course, Shark Angel OJ (a champion surfer herself) is a great believer and works hard within this community.

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.
