Sharks: the more we know about them, the more fascinating they become.

Shark Rescue has partnered with the Shark and Coral Conservation Trust in order to protect sharks and ocean health. For our Winter Campaign, our Shark Rescue Duo will run in this year's Gobi Desert March

The race is part of the Racing the Planet endurance series, and Delian Gaskell and Denvy Lo will put their fitness to the test as they hike through 250km of the Gobi Desert in 6 days. This is one of the toughest terrains on the planet, a wild and unforgiving place, and they're taking on this challenge to help Shark Rescue. Click here to meet our Shark Rescue Champions!

What your donation will do for sharks:

   +  From every donation, 25% goes to the Shark and Coral Conservation Trust to protect shark habitats.

   +  With the balance, Shark Rescue will:

                +  Use DNA testing to find out what species of shark is being sold in Hong Kong.

                +  Build cases to bring traders and sellers to court.

                +  Support our Winter Campaign - get a sneak peak of our Thank-you Card!

Help us hamper the shark trade and help those committed to saving sharks!

Why Save Sharks?

Shark populations are collapsing due to overfishing - we're killing them faster than they can reproduce. When it comes to shark survival, it's a numbers game and people are winning by a long shot.

    +  Sharks have lived in the oceans for over 400 million years - long before the dinosaurs roamed the planet.

    +  The International Union for Conservation of Nature reports that over 30% of open-ocean sharks are now vulnerable to extinction.

    +  For the roughly 350 different species, time is running out.

Support us as we do our work - support Delian and Denvy as they race across the Gobi Desert!

All money raised goes to saving sharks and protecting the oceans! Delian and Denvy have paid for race costs (registration, licenses, flights, etc.) themselves.
