Local environmental advocates are working with animated sea character Shark Stanley to reach out to schools and businesses to increase awareness of shark conservation.

Shark Stanley is the face of the global shark awareness campaign dedicated to creating shark sanctuaries and supporting the proper management of sharks and rays.

Stanley has been busy visiting schools and appearing at community events to take ‘selfies’ with children and adults.

The character has been to the Oseta Jolly Primary School, Edward Gartland Youth Centre, and others educating why sharks are important to TCI and why people should care about their conservation.
