Your daily life affects sharks more than you might think, even if you live far from the ocean. Your actions can make a difference, as can supporting our work financially. We rely on the generous donations of people who care about sharks and rays - people like you. If you support our vision for healthy oceans, or if there is a project you feel passionate about and would like to receive information on how to become a partner, we would really love to hear from you.

This conservation win for the species was mainly achieved thanks to capacity building, especially training in safe handling and release practices, and an awareness campaign among the local fishers.See WWF-Pakistan Press Release
