The goal of our conservation program is to replace shark fishing for shark tourism. We will invest your donations and the main part of our profits to put Blue Religion tourist boats out at sea with a shark fisherman crew. Become a shark volunteer and help us collect data from the seafood markets to know where the help is needed the most.
