Mission, Vision, and Charitable Objectives

What we want to achieve and how!

Sharks in the waters of Dorset

Most people don’t know that we have so many incredible species that call our waters home, and even fewer people realise that many of these species are at risk of extinction, and need our help. We’re committed to changing this!

Mission Statement:

“Using education to change perception, and science to save sharks”

Vision Statement:

“Shared Seas, Safe Sharks”

Charitable Objectives:

  • To promote for the benefit of the public the study, conservation and protection of sharks and their habitats.
  • To advance the education of the public in general on the study, conservation and protection of sharks.
  • To advance the education of the public in general (and particularly amongst scientists) on the subject of sharks by conducting scientific research in all aspects of that subject, and for the public benefit, to publish and promote the useful results.
  • To promote humane behaviour towards sharks and educate the public in matters pertaining to shark welfare and the prevention of cruelty and suffering among sharks.

    I have been fascinated with coastal and marine habitats since my childhood holidays in Dorset and Pembrokeshire.

  • David Edwards

    Trustee

    People fondly (I like to think, though likely in error) call me Ed. I’m a Staffordshire born creative designer and periodic research assistant. My love of sharks predates my earliest memory and I’m currently in the process of combining this passion with my interest in videogame design and related technologies.
