What can we do?

Drops come together to make an ocean. For every man killed by a shark, man kills 20 million sharks. It is the man who ventures into the sea and kills these ancient marine predators who have ruled the sea since ages. It is the time we realize our responsibilities and do something to prevent the best marine predator from extinction. A few sensible steps can do a lot to prevent depletion of sharks. Here are few:
  • Eat shark-friendly fish! Campaign for the fishing industry to change their practices and reduce the amount of bycatch they take.

  • Support ecotourism - responsible tourism can help to save some of the world's most endangered species. Choose a shark-watching trip that puts money directly into conservation and make sure the company has a clear animal welfare policy.
  • Don't be tempted to try shark's fin soup and avoid shark meat unless you are sure it comes from a managed shark fishery. Challenge restaurants that serve shark products

  • Don't buy cosmetic products that contain squalene (an oil extracted from shark livers). Eco-friendly alternatives can be sourced from 'green' outlets.

  • Support wildlife charities and pressure groups such as those listed in our links section.

  • Why not adopt a shark? Some sharks available for adoption are satellites tagged, so you can track their progress. Shark adoption is a good way to support conservation work.

  • Find out more about sharks. Read books, get in touch with conservation organizations and search the Internet for information. The more informed you are, the more you will be able to help.

  • Draw attention to the plight of sharks. Tell your friends and family about the situation.
