Shark Angels To Launch Annual World Ocean Day Auction


US-based shark advocacy group Shark Angels is launching its annual World Oceans Day Auction this weekend via the global charity auction site Charity Auctions Today.

The auction, which runs from June 3rd to 17th, will feature a bunch of dive expeditions around the globe.

Shark Angels Executive Director Jamie Pollack says:

“This year’s auction is bigger and better than ever. We’re thrilled with the support we’ve received from many of our regular donors and excited about our partnerships with new donors. What that means for bidders is that we have more trips this year than we’ve ever had to some amazing destinations. Bidders can score a great deal on a trip while helping to fuel Shark Angels’ innovative education and advocacy programs to protect sharks, one of the ocean’s apex species. The health of the world’s oceans depends on healthy shark populations, and every creature on earth depends on healthy oceans for survival.”

This year’s United Nations World Oceans Day on June 8th, 2023 will highlight the theme “Planet Ocean: tides are changing.” With 90% of big fish populations depleted, 33% of shark species at risk of extinction and 50% of coral reefs destroyed, Shark Angels says it’s “crucial that people work together to protect our vital ocean resources.”

You can bid on the auction beginning tomorrow at
