Instagram – February 26th, 2019

We are delighted to be working with Fauna and Flora International (FFI) in 2019, an organisation who focus (among many other things!) on protecting and maintaining ocean diversity. Their 2019 grant funds will go towards their project, “We ♥ Tubarões” (“We Love Sharks”), which is based in a hotspot for more than 60 species of sharks and rays on Brava Island, Cape Verde. They will work closely with NGO Biflores, and collaborate with local fishermen to establish the needs and requirements of the communities in the Cape Verde by addressing the prevailing negative attitudes towards sharks. In the last decade, ~100 million sharks have been killed each year globally (Worm, 2013) and FFI hopes to provide local people with knowledge, training and tools to sustainably improve their livelihoods and understand the vital role of sharks in marine ecosystems. @faunafloraint
