Respect and protect.
Commercially harvested openly in places, and killed under the guise of research in others - the giants of the oceans are awe-inspiring even in pictures. They are not alone in being pursued by hunters though.
Legal hunting seasons, abuse of indigenous hunting rights, by-catch and poaching for profit - these all lead to the deaths of thousands of sea turtles, dugongs, rays and seals. It’s no longer acceptable to sit back and do nothing whether we live near an ocean or miles inland. The oceans’ problems are our problems. In order to survive, we need to respect and protect them and the marine life that depends on them as much as we do. It's time to stop talking and start doing.
Marine conservation - uniting people all over the world.
Things have changed. Now it’s the sharks that should be afraid to be in the water. Top of the food chain, apex predators, crucial to the ocean’s eco-system, and yet 100 million are killed each year, 73 million for their fins alone.
Marine conservation is uniting people all over the world. With an almost tribal urge, the sense of belonging and personal contribution is strong; people are willing to sacrifice much more in support of their tribe than ever before.
Power and strength in numbers.
The oceans cover over 70% of the earth’s surface, and provide us with half the oxygen we need to breathe. From industry waste and emissions to throwing away a single plastic bottle that will leave its mark for ever, and from the great ocean garbage patches to toxic fish and marine mammals, we are all responsible for the state it’s in today. The scale of the problems is vast, but there is power and strength in numbers. Add you voice to ours and we will do amazing things together.
Achieve amazing things for dolphins.
Find someone who doesn’t love dolphins, and you’ll be eye to eye with one of the people who still hunts them, drives them into coves to be killed for food, or equally senselessly, captures and sells them for entertainment. Our tribe is young, but together we can grow a powerful, global marine conservation movement that can and will achieve amazing things for dolphins and other marine life. We salute the numerous other tribes that have been battling to save the oceans for many years. We look forward to fighting alongside them.
