HELP US CHANGE THE FUTURE FOR SHARKS & THE MEN THAT FISH THEM.
What do we do with donations?
A huge amount of background work within the community and each individual fishing vessel takes place to make this project possible. Your donations are dedicated to our final goal of repurposing an entire fleet of fishing vessels in tourism, supporting fishermen & their families on a path to a better future that in turn, saves marine life. Below are some of many examples of how we do this, with both humans and sharks in mind.
1 - Employment; Training & licensing of fishing vessels so that they may move from fishing into tourism.
2 - Improving health care and living conditions through investing in clean water systems, education & waste management.
3 - Funding sustainable projects that provide new income opportunities to existing fishermen and their families, this in-tern prevents the fishing and exploitation of sharks, i.e. tourism. This includes the enforcement of eco tourism training and regulations.
4 - Education, sponsoring shark fishermen’s children or crew themselves to attend university and have a wider range of options for their future that they otherwise may not be exposed to.
5 - Explore the shark fin trade from captain to consumer, highlighting the divide between the people buying shark fins and the men exploited to obtain them. This includes a more in-depth look into the processing & exporting of shark fins.
6 - Research, by ensuring our methods are not just functioning but functioning effectively, we continue to research the movements of sharks in Indonesia and new threats to their populations.
“There's more to doing good than hating evil.”
The presence of tiger sharks in catches lead Project Hiu to become the first team to tag tiger sharks in Indonesia in 2022 with the help of your donations.
EDUCATION; It is the underlining foundation for implementing long-term change. Project Hiu aims to educate future generations on; sustainable business practice, entrepreneurship and language. For this to be possible we make frequent calculated contributions to the school of materials & teachers.
Our donations are dedicated to the fight for our wildlife in the world’s largest shark fishing nation and setting the foundation required for fishermen to have a new and sustainable future in tourism.
