Shark Trust The world wouldn't be the same without the amazing diversity of sharks and rays that enrich every sea. Disregarded for too long, the importance of sharks is now being widely recognised. For 20 years, we have been absolutely dedicated to pushing positive change to safeguard the future of sharks. Much progress has been made but more work is needed. Your support and donations help us to succeed; to reform fisheries, to support conservation science and to activate communities. As our Patron Steve Backshall puts it: "The Shark Trust's work in protecting sharks is at the cutting edge of conservation...the only hope we have of securing the future of sharks in our seas".
