Press release.

Shark Angels, a US based non-profit, is thrilled to launch their first annual World Oceans Day auction on 16 May on Charity Buzz, one of the world’s leading auction platforms. Items up for bid, through 11 June, include incredible celebrity experiences, sports memorabilia, unique expeditions around the globe, and, of course, quite a few sharky items.

By bidding on their amazing auction items, you’ll fuel critical campaigns and play a vital role in protecting not just a threatened species, but also the oceans. Shark Angels employs grassroots outreach, creative media, and education campaigns aimed at inspiring a global movement to save sharks – and the ecosystems they keep healthy. And it’s working. For over five years, Shark Angels has been involved in some of the most well-known and highest impact ocean conservation programs around the world.

We’ve been thrilled with the support from our partners and are very excited about this experiential auction,” says executive director, Julie Andersen. “Like the angels – and the animals they protect – it is truly unique.” Ms. Andersen hopes the auction will earn enough to fuel Shark Angels’ innovative education and advocacy programs, like FinFree, to protect sharks, the ocean’s apex species. “The health of the world’s oceans depends on healthy shark populations, and every creature on earth depends on healthy oceans for survival. This is a tangible way to ensure your donations make a very real difference.”

You can help by checking out the items, bidding, and helping to spread the link far and wide. Sharks, healthy oceans, and a committed organization dedicated to their preservation are depending on it. We’ve done a lot with a little. But now we need your help.
