Shark Angels, a US based non-profit, has launched their annual World Oceans Day Auction via the global charity auction site, Charity Auctions Today.
There are some stellar lots up for grabs, including dive trips and liveaboard expeditions, plus some rare signed memorabilia. Check out all of the offerings here – bidding is open until 19 June.
“With the world shut down for the past two years, we’ve been unable to hold our annual auction,” explains Executive Director Jamie Pollack. “Now that the world is reopening, we are excited to be able to offer these trips to help people travel once again and give them the opportunity to support us at this critical time.
“Proceeds from this auction will help 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 is a tangible way to ensure your donations make a very real difference.”
This year’s United Nations World Oceans Day, on 8 June 2022, will highlight the theme Revitalization: Collective Action for the Ocean. Shark Angels chose this time for the auction because protecting sharks also means protecting the beautiful blue oceans they inhabit – by bidding on these items and helping to spread the auction link, you can play a part in preserving this vital ecosystem.
Shark Angels is a non-profit shark conservation organization that advocates for sharks and our beautiful blue planet by turning fear of sharks into fascination, and empowering the public through science, education, diving, legislation and outreach.
