Project AWARE Foundation wrote -Are you FINatical about Sharks? PADI staff & friends are swimming to end shark finning for Project AWARE Foundation's first Finathon™. The clock’s ticking for vanishing shark species. You can join the race to protect them. Join our Finathon™ team, seek sponsorship online and let the global race to end shark finning begin.
Thanks to your support Project AWARE will:
• Fight to stop shark finning
• Insist on full protections for critically endangered sharks
• Negotiate stronger policies to ensure a brighter future for all sharks
WHY SHARKS? Finning kills thousands of sharks every day. This cruel and wasteful practice involves slicing off the sharks’ fins and throwing the body overboard. Unable to swim, the shark bleeds to death or drowns. Shark fishing is largely unregulated in most of the world’s oceans. Together divers have a powerful, collective voice to secure protection for endangered shark species worldwide.
