Support the SRC

Contribute to the SRC

Sharks are threatened and need your help. These are challenging economic times but it is important to focus on issues that will affect our future generations. Sharks are crucial in maintaining the health of the World's Oceans, which are the life support of our planet. We must increase public awareness of the shark's vital role in the marine ecosystem if we are to save the tens of millions of sharks that are senselessly slaughtered each year for their fins. Without your help their fate is uncertain. Please help by supporting our Shark Conservation, Education, and Research programs with a tax-deductible donation today. Listed below are the SRC projects for which funds are urgently needed. If you prefer to send a check or money order our mailing address is at the bottom of this page. International shipping requires an additional contribution. Thank you for caring and for your support.
