Saving Our Sharks Association Civil is a Non Government Organization formed in June 2010 by a group of concerned friends that work hard to protect our environment for future generations to enjoy.
Our principle mission is to study and conserve Sharks; however, we are also active in projects that involve the protection of flora and fauna from marine and freshwater ecosystems.
Sharks are disappearing at an alarming rate and protection for them is weak to non-existent due to their undeserved reputation as man eaters. We are out to disprove this myth and improve our understanding of these predators through a combination of research, education, public awareness and government legislation initiatives.
Sharks have existed on this earth for approximately 350m years. During that time they have evolved to perform an important role in maintaining the health and balance of the earth's marine ecosystems.
In the last 100 years, 90% of the world's sharks have disappeared. This year up to 100 million more of them will die. That means that we are now taking the last 10% of the remaining sharks. This must stop and we want to do all we can to make that happen.
