4 things you can do to help sharks

As well as signing up to news, you can help sharks by following our top tips below:

Don't buy products made from shark

  • This includes shagreen and shark-leather goods, health and beauty products containing shark liver oil (squalene) and fresh shark teeth and jaws.

Avoid eating shark

  • Particularly watch out as shark meat is often sold in fish and chip shops under different names, for example as 'Rocksalmon' in the UK and as 'Flake' in Australia.

Never eat shark fin soup!

If a restaurant or shop near you sells shark, complain, and tell your friends!
