I'm sure you remember Shark Stanley from 2013 when he swam to 135 countries to gather support for shark protections at the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, or CITES. With your help we protected hammerhead, porbeagle, and oceanic whitetip sharks, as well as manta rays.
Now Shark Stanley and his friends are turning their attention to creating shark sanctuaries across the globe. Will you help us? We will have a global launch in the coming months, but have an online preview scheduled for World Wildlife Day on March 3. On that day, come back to this blog by visiting www.SharkStanley.com to find out how you can get a free digital copy of the new book, as well as a sneak peek at some of our new materials before the global launch.
Are you excited? If you want to get a head start on helping Stanley and his pals, you should know what to do by now. Print out the characters below, cut them out, and photograph them with people who support shark conservation. The best photos are taken in front of iconic landmarks that show us where you live. We'll have some tips on taking great photos in the coming days.
Remember to take your photos with #SharkStanley. You can also follow Shark Stanley on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
The fab four of Shark Stanley, Pierre Porbeagle, Waqi Whitetip, and Manta Reina have been joined by 14 new friends! Each one is a different species. Can you guess what they are? Can you help us name them?
