The Shark League is tackling one of the world’s most pressing shark conservation crises: the dangerous decline of Atlantic shortfin makos. Ahead of upcoming negotiations of the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT), we’re promoting and tracking support from EU Member States for urgently needed, science-based catch limits to save this endangered species.

To turn the tide, we need YOUR help to get the European Commission to step up and follow the science!

Voices For Makos
