Are you FINatical about Sharks?

The clock’s ticking for vanishing shark and ray species. If you’re FINatical about sharks, make a splash with a fundraising challenge for shark protection.

What is the Finathon?
Finathon is a fundraising challenge for divers and non-divers to raise funds and awareness to protect vulnerable shark and ray species. A Finathon can be as simple as a few laps of your pool, a 5K run or donating your birthday in lieu of gifts!  Your Finathon helps Project AWARE:

  • Fight to stop shark finning
  • Insist on full protections for critically endangered sharks and rays
  • Negotiate stronger policies to ensure a brighter future for all sharks and rays

You can help Project AWARE:

In 2015 Project influenced:

  • The united push towards a stronger finning ban within the North Atlantic Fisheries Organization area
  • Important progress by the Inter-American Tropical Tuna Commission to safeguard manta & devil rays
  • A push to strengthen the shark finning ban, put caps on catches of blue and short fin mako sharks, and protect porbeagles in the Atlantic

Thank you for supporting the Finathon, propelling our work to implement necessary guidelines for shark and ray protection in 2016 and beyond. Create your fundraising page now and we'll be in touch every step of the way to ensure your action is a success!
