Calypso is swimming to end shark finning on 29th May 2013.
Are you and your friends FINatical about Sharks? We invite you to join our Finathon™ today and fundraise for their protection.
We pledge that the more donations we get for Project AWARE, the further the Calypso Team will swim for sharks! For those of you who've been put through your diving course swim tests by our instructors, why not get them doing some extra swimming!!!! You can find team members on the right of the page.
Please also SHARE this team page link with others, and visit often to see our progress:
We'll be setting up various distances so if you want to join then you can! You can show up on the day and be part of the CALYPSO FAMILY relay. Or set up your own page: click 'Create a Fundraising Page' at the top right and then join the Calypso Diving team after setting up your profile. Details about the day will be posted here nearer the time.
Why be FINatical about sharks with AWARE? Shark fishing is largely unregulated around the world. Overfishing, bycatch and finning – the slicing of sharks fining and throwing away the body at sea - kills thousands of sharks every day. Project AWARE has recently helped close loopholes in the EU finning ban and secure international trade protections for 8 of the world’s most vulnerable sharks and rays. But, to ensure the survival of sharks, stricter, enforceable controls are needed for more species at national, regional and global levels.
Thanks to your support Project AWARE will:
* Fight to stop finning
* Insist on full protections for critically endangered sharks
* Negotiate stronger policies to ensure a brighter future for all sharks
The clock’s ticking for vanishing shark species. You can join the race to protect them. Join our Finathon™ team: make a donation to our fundraising goal, or take part in the swim and seek sponsorship online yourself! Let the global race to end shark finning begin.
Thanks for your help!
