We are excited to support these amazing organizations in their mission to conserve, protect, and save sharks with us:
Venice, California, USA
Shark Allies is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization originally established in 2007 in Hawaii and incorporated in California in 2014
Shark Allies is dedicated to the protection and conservation of sharks and rays. Their focus is on taking action, on raising awareness and guiding initiatives that reduce the destructive overfishing of sharks on a global scale.
Sharks are not the most popular animal in the ocean, and that is reflected in the lack of attention their plight is receiving. The killing of millions of sharks stays under the radar, while news of one shark attack hits the news on a global level. Because there are so many urgent problems that need to be dealt with, sharks are under-represented even within the ocean conservation world. Non-profits divide and conquer issues, focusing on small niches of specialty with hopes that the combined efforts result in stronger, healthier oceans. While some focus on plastics pollution, climate change, or on saving marine mammals, Shark Allies represent sharks and rays exclusively.

The goal of Sharks4Kids is to create a new generation of shark advocates through access to a dynamic range of educational materials. Curriculum, games and activities will allow teachers to integrate shark education into their science programs on an introductory, intermediate or advanced level. Students can access games, activities and info sheets to satisfy their own curiosity about sharks. Photos and videos from scientists and conservationists bring an exciting element into the classroom and show students the beauty of the ocean.
The Sharks4Kids team brings together scientists, educators, conservationists and professional videographers to create a unique opportunity for the next generation to learn why sharks need kids and kids need sharks.
