Thresher Shark Project
TIME IS RUNNING OUT
This group of young and enthusiastic heroes are working day and night to protect our thresher shark from a great threat. "Thresher Shark Project Indonesia was founded in 2018. Our work aims to protect endangered pelagic thresher shark (Alopias pelagicus) in Alor Island, Indonesia through investigating the critical habitat, socio-economic importance of the species for the community and conservation outreach to local schools. They combine research and community engagement to inform policy decision for local protection of the species"
LETS SHOW OUR ENDLESS SUPPORT!
We are fundraising to help the transition of thresher shark fishermen to sustainable yellowfin tuna fisheries. Help us raise at minimum US$30,000 to achieve this. @threshershark.id has been working alongside thresher shark fishermen, and all Alor stakeholders to put an end to targeted endangered thresher sharks in two small and remote fishing villages.
Our early engagement since 2018 has made us gain trust from community members, village elders, indigenous leaders as well as government to achieve this. Thresher shark fishermen have been proposing the idea to increase their skills and asking for facilities to transition into sustainable yellowfin tuna fisheries which are thriving in the region.
We need your help! Please consider donating to help these fishermen get out of poverty and prevent the thresher sharks from going extinct. Any amount of donation and shares would definitely help us achieve this tangible conservation outcome by 2022. Thank you for all your supports!
