    This is Your Chance to Help Save Sharks!
    Bring Sharkwater to China
    Act Now!


    Dear Friends,

    It's really important that you help us bring the award-winning documentary Sharkwater to China.

    China is the largest consumer and trader of shark fins in the world, fueling the growing demand for shark fin soup that is destroying our oceans within our lifetime. Most Chinese consumers don’t know that shark fin soup contains shark, because the translation literally means, "fish wing soup".

    Shark populations have dropped more than 90% in 30 years, destroying the most important ecosystem for our own survival. Conservation isn't just saving species and ecosystems, it's saving humans.

    This is a huge consumer awareness issue that we have the power to change. We urgently need your help to create a Chinese version of Sharkwater that will target an audience of over
    300 million people. We can change the world, with your help.

    WHAT YOU CAN DO:
    Donate now to the non-profit foundation Save The Blue that is working with us and WildAid to bring Sharkwater to China & receive a special custom-made tribal shark pendant, shirt or bag!

    Wear your special shark pendant with pride to engage people in making shark conservation an international priority!
    It’s cool to save sharks!

    Act Now & Donate to bring Sharkwater to China.

    Thanks for helping us save sharks,
    Rob Stewart and the Sharkwater Team

    Save The Blue




    I got mine - who else is getting one?

    Seems like a worthy enough cause. Duckets contributed.

    Thanks for bringing this to CHUM's attention, Roger. Seems like these guys are taking a novel approach to educating the population.

    AC -- seems more like they are taking a "movie" approach. ;)
