The clock’s ticking for vanishing shark species. This July, Project AWARE is looking for 100 Finathon™ champions to join the race to protect them. 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 a great way to bring the community together, raise awareness and funds to support this unique cause. You can help Project AWARE:
· 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 with AWARE? 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. Project AWARE has recently helped close loopholes in the EU finning ban and secure international trade protections for 8 of the world’s most vulnerable sharks and rays. But, to ensure the survival of sharks, stricter, enforceable controls are needed for more species at national, regional and global levels.
