Are you FINatical about Sharks?
The clock’s ticking for vanishing shark species. If you’re FINatical about sharks, join the Finathon today and fundraise for their protection.
What is the Finathon™? Like a swimathon, fun run, cycle race or marathon – the Finathon is to raise awareness and funds to support this unique cause. You can help :
- 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 be FINatical about sharks? Shark fishing is largely unregulated around the world. Overfishing, bycatch and finning – the slicing of sharks fining and throwing away the body at sea – kills thousands of sharks every day. To ensure the survival of sharks, stricter, enforceable controls are needed for more species at national, regional and global levels.
