Every year, over 100 million sharks are caught worldwide for shark fins and other products, with over 50% of the world’s shark fin being traded through Hong Kong alone. As apex predators, sharks are a crucial part of the marine food chain. The demand for shark products has contributed to the rapid decline of many species, with several already nearing extinction. Removing sharks from our oceans will threaten the delicate balance of ecosystems that are valuable sources of food and key elements in regulating our climate.
Hong Kong Shark Foundation (HKSF) is a registered charity dedicated exclusively to shark conservation. HKAF aims to raise awareness about shark conservation, particularly the unsustainable practice of shark finning, and to reduce consumption of shark products in Hong Kong.
HKSF believes this a rare opportunity for people everywhere, especially in Hong Kong, to make a significant impact on a global scale. Please act now by helping to raise awareness about shark conservation and by educating people to reduce the consumption of shark products globally to save the world’s sharks.
Volunteer: People choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. For some, it offers the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them. For others, it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience. Regardless of the motivation, what unites them all is that they find it both challenging and rewarding.
Volunteering for HKSF is a great way to get personally involved in shark conservation and saving sharks. HKSF is a local Hong Kong charity that welcomes ALL volunteers from interns and IT experts to office admins and fundraisers to student Shark Ambassadors and animal activists.
