"The Shark Spotting Programme is the only program of its kind in the world. It attempts to balance the needs of both people and white shark conservation by pro-actively reducing the interaction and conflict between recreational water users and sharks.
We believe that if we can reduce the already small risk of a shark bite then we can make a meaningful contribution to white shark conservation, contribute to the community’s well-being and set a precedent in how people and sharks can co-exist.”
"Earth Echo International’s mission is to inspire young people worldwide to act now for a sustainable future. We are a nonprofit 501c3 organization founded in 2000 by siblings Philippe and Alexandra Cousteau in honor of their father Philippe Cousteau Sr., son of the legendary explorer Jacques Yves Cousteau.
Philippe Sr.’s belief in a world, where every single child can breathe fresh air, drink clean water, and walk on green grass under a blue sky, serves as our vision to this day. Our approach is simple; Earth Echo’s 21st century tools and interactive resources equip youth to identify and solve environmental challenges starting in their own communities."
"Wild Aid’s mission is to end the illegal wildlife trade in our lifetimes. We envision a world where people no longer buy wildlife products such as shark fin, elephant ivory and rhino horn. While most wildlife conservation groups focus on protecting animals from poaching, Wild Aid works to reduce global consumption of wildlife products by persuading consumers and strengthening enforcement.
With an unrivaled portfolio of celebrity ambassadors and global network of media partners, Wild Aid leverages nearly $200 million in annual pro-bono media support. Our message reaches up to 1 billion people every week. Wild Aid's strategy for achieving this goal is to reduce demand for these products using our slogan: "When the buying stops, the killing can too."
"Sharks and rays are the most threatened vertebrates on the planet. Yet, the current scale of conservation efforts and investments do not match the level of urgency. Founded by the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, the Global Partnership for Sharks and Rays (GPSR) is a direct response to this looming ecological crisis and was launched by five visionary philanthropic organizations, who share a commitment to funding the most effective shark and ray conservation projects on the planet."
