Happy European Shark Week

Divers across Europe have been working together to host events to raise awareness of the urgent need to end overfishing of sharks and prevent greater harm to the ecosystems they maintain this week.

Sharks have been around for more than 400 million years, but in the last one hundred years our overfishing and finning practices have made sharks one of the most threated species on the planet. Today, one third of European species are threatened with extinction. Europe is a particularly bad offender here, with some of the weakest finning regulations in the world. By the end of this year the EU will finalise a long awaited plan of action to protect sharks.

Please check out the website above, sign our petition and get involved.
