Rob Stewart Sharkwater Foundation

Registered Name: Rob Stewart Sharkwater Foundation

Business Number: 761391911RR0001

Shark populations have dropped over 90% in the past 30 years, threatening the balance of life on earth upon which we depend on.

We don’t think you want to be contributing to the demise of one of the oldest, most important predators the planet has, without knowing it!

Sharks are being killed for more than just their fins… They are being killed for their livers… for their flesh… for their cartilage… for their skin.

And they’re being sold to you in disguise!

Chances are, you’ve consumed or used products that contain shark. You just didn’t know it!

Unfortunately, the burden is on the consumer to educate themselves about products that contain shark and perform the necessary detective work to ensure they are not contributing to the sharks’ demise.

The Rob Stewart Sharkwater Foundation advocates for ocean conservation through awareness, education, and entertainment.

Sharkwater, Revolution and Sharkwater Extinction are the films by the acclaimed activist Rob Stewart which have sparked a worldwide phenomenon to save sharks, the oceans, and ourselves.
