Shark Trust

Shark conservation is a global problem and needs global solutions.

We need to change our understanding and appreciation for sharks. And we need to change how we manage and protect populations on a global scale.

We believe the best way to safeguard the future of sharks is through a solutions-based approach that promotes positive change.

We're a small team based in Plymouth, UK. Yet the impact of our work is far reaching and often belies our humble office in Britain's Ocean City. This is due to our collaborative nature. And thanks to our large and ever-growing supporter base, who champion our work wherever they go.

We work at an international level to safeguard the future of sharks and their close relatives – the skates, rays and chimaera.

Our vision

A future where sharks thrive within a globally healthy marine ecosystem.

Our mission

Safeguarding the future of sharks through positive change. We achieve this through science, education, influence and action.
