Shark Stewards is a new project of The Turtle Island Restoration Network
Our programs combine education with advocacy to protect ocean predators.
To Start a Shark Steward Chapter, Ban shark Finning and Support Shark Fin Trade Bans go to the new Shark Stewards web site.
We are fishing the oceans dry of apex predators like sharks, bluefin tuna and swordfish. Bycatch on longlines is killing marine mammals, millions of seabirds and sharks and thousands of endangered sea turtles.
Shark Stewards Programs:
