We are a partnership of philanthropists dedicated to solving the global shark crisis and safeguarding the health and vitality of our oceans.

Sharks and rays represent some of the oldest and most diverse animals on Earth. As top predators, sharks and their ocean ecosystems are closely linked. Yet an estimated 25% of all sharks and rays are threatened with extinction and millions are killed annually. This crisis represents a growing threat to the wellbeing of the oceans and the billions of people who rely on them.
