Shark Adoption Program Details & Options
Through this adoption program, we invite everyone to help save sharks and change perception in a fun and sustainable way. There are three key projects to choose specifically where your conservation donation goes towards:
Choose to adopt your shark for:
Youth Outreach and Educational Programs
Adopting a shark to Sponsor Tags & The Science Programs
Adopt a shark to help fund our International Conservation Projects & the Saving Sharks 2016 Documentary
Youth Outreach and Education Programs:
Youth Outreach and Education Programs are our way of reaching out to the younger generation and teaching them from a scientific standpoint about the importance of sharks. These presentations include toys, prizes, games, interactive learning tools and a staff of marine biologists passionate about making a difference and eliminating the fear of sharks before it becomes present. Your donation goes towards the purchase of marine life toy prizes & school supplies. $250 minimum.
Sponsor a Shark Tag:
Shark tags allow us to get a more accurate reading of shark activity, statistics, and location that can help us become more effective in understanding & protecting aggregate sites and birthing grounds of various species of sharks. With the sponsorship of a shark tag, we invite you to name the shark, and we will send you images of your shark, its field ID record sheet, as well as a photo certificate.
Tags cost between $3,000- $30,000 ($3000 minimum.)
Shark adoption helps fund the current ongoing research that is observing correlations between predatory game fish, apex predators like sharks and weather patterns, and the unique interaction that happens between humans and sharks and what factors effect that interaction. We are currently looking at population trends and movements by gender and season. This research is essential because it helps us understand sharks and their role in all of our lives. We depend on the health of the oceans for much of our sustenance, commerce, and even recreational enjoyment. Without sharks the health of marine ecosystems has been scientifically proven to decline in productivity.
Adopt a Shark:
Adopting a Shark is an open ended contribution, you will receive a stuffed animal shark with a signed photo from the One Ocean/Water Inspired Team. All additional proceeds go towards our worldwide conservation projects, and the making of the saving sharks documentary filming throughout 2016 as we travel internationally for our annual research & conservation projects. Donations exceeding $300 will receive a limited edition “Saving Sharks Film” T-Shirt. Shark stuffed animal & photo minimum $100.
