“Our shark research and conservation work, underway since 2005, has been getting spectacular results,” said Dr Pierce. “We’ve had amazing public support. I’m hugely proud of the work we’ve done to date.
“Funding these efforts, though, has been an ongoing struggle. So we’re now building a community of supporters that share our desire to save Earth’s largest fish.
“You’ll be joining forces with a small, dedicated team of expert researchers that are working every day to make the world a better place. You’ll get personal updates from global leaders in marine biology and conservation, and you’ll be helping to save the world’s amazing marine wildlife.
“If you’re able to help, we’ll be super-grateful. The whale sharks will be freakin’ stoked.”
