"I'm FINished with Fins" Campaign Launches in the World's Shark Fin Trade Capital
This grassroots campaign has been a huge success in Singapore, Malaysia, and Taiwan. In Hong Kong, the campaign is both asking 100,000 Hong Kongers to pledge through an online platform not to consume shark fin soup and educating the public that it is socially acceptable to say "no" to shark fin.
Adopt-A-Bull Shark Initiative
Shark Savers is launching a new initiative, "Adopt A Bull Shark" to celebrate 'Shark Week' with a positive message about sharks. We want to provide YOU the opportunity to get to know sharks - Fiji's amazing bull sharks - as individuals, rather than stereotypes while helping support our shark conservation work, globally.

Shark Diving Expedition 2014:
Islas Revillagigedo, Mexico
This expedition will combine the fun 'citizen science' approach of the SharksCount Program, and the tagging and monitoring expertise of Fins Attached. Divers will have the opportunity to actively participate in both aspects of the expedition, daily. This is your opportunity to participate, hands-on, in helping conduct shark research in support of conservation.
