As our final SeaQuest Shark Week blog segment, we will be focusing further on conservation and what we can do in our everyday lives to help keep our ocean and shark populations healthy! You don’t need to have a degree or travel great distances to help. These tips are geared for the average household.
Eating less fish
100s of sharks are accidentally caught during the commercial fishing expeditions of our more common seafood choices. While these are just accidents, they are decreasing the shark populations faster than nature can replace them. How can you help? By eating less fish, we can decrease the amount of commercial fishing worldwide and therefore reduce the number of accidental shark deaths caused by the commercial fishing industry. Implement a Fish-less Friday or a No Seafood Monday within your families weekly menu and you will help save sharks one dinner at a time!
Donating to Non-Profits
Donating doesn’t have to be a huge hit to your wallet. Donating $5-$10 every week or even every month can mean life changing effects on the oceans populations. There are dozens of non-profit organizations dedicated to helping save our ocean populations by reducing and preventing devastating ocean pollution. You are one google search away from locating the perfect charity that is helping protect and save the amazing shark species we all know and love!
Sharing Content on Social Media
The easiest way we can all make a difference is the positive influence we can share on our social media. Each time you share ocean conservation and educational content with your friends, families, and followers, you are increasing the number of views that article receives bringing more and more attention to this important cause. Help save the sharks by sharing articles, donation pages, and non-profit organizations’ posts with your friends and followers. You can start by sharing all of the Shark Week at SeaQuest posts!
Thank you so much for joining us this week on our SeaQuest Shark Week Adventure. We hope to see you and your Family at a SeaQuest location soon!
