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 swimming challenge to fundraise for shark protection.

What is the Finathon?
Finathon is a swimming 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, an island relay or wacky races in shark suits! Put your fins on for sharks and get swimming to fundraise for their protection. 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 November 2014 we helped secure protection for 21 species of shark and rays under the Convention on Migratory Species, following on from our success listing oceanic whitetip sharks, porbeagles, three species of hammerheads and both manta rays under CITES. (Convention for International Trade of Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora.)

Thank you for supporting the Finathon, propelling our work to implement necessary guidelines for shark and ray protection in 2015 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!
