How is Oceana collaborating with Discovery?
Discovery and Oceana are teaming up to help protect sharks threatened by a global shark fin trade that includes fins from as many as 73 million sharks each year. Through campaigns that educate and inspire, Oceana is raising awareness on why healthy oceans need sharks. Funds raised for Oceana during Shark Week help to save sharks and protect the oceans.

The fight to end the global shark fin trade is supported by collaborations with major brands that raise funds and awareness for sharks. Oceana is excited to collaborate with the following brands:
