Transforming Lives by Saving Sharks.

Shark fishing is a tradition that goes back generations on Isla Mujeres. We need Shark Heroes like you to make a difference in fishers’ lives and protect the balance of our oceans.

Building a Global
Movement to SAVE SHARKS

Saving Our Sharks Foundation is dedicated to supporting local communities’ livelihoods by protecting shark populations.

Our goal is to amplify and bring meaningful support to local communities by funding impactful shark conservation projects that bring long-term wellbeing for sharks, their habitats, and the people who depend upon them.

We support the Masters of the Sea fishing cooperatives in the Mexican Caribbean that are giving up their traditional livelihoods to become the protectors of sharks.
