Chum hilf mit,
d’Hai und üsi Ozean z’schütze!

Come and help us to protect the sharks and our oceans!

SHARKPROJECT SWITZERLAND has been active throughout Switzerland, promoting the protection of sharks and the world’s oceans since 2006. The team that started off small, reorganised in 2014 and is now busy seeking active members to support it as it goes from strength to strength.

We want to pass on our knowledge

SHARKPROJECT’s main goal is to inform people about the grievous state of the world’s oceans, and to overcome their fear of sharks. We want to show them why it is so important to protect both these majestic animals and their environment. Even in the landlocked Switzerland we realise that there is a lot to be done. Medications and cosmetics containing shark extracts are, unfortunately, still available for purchase, and shark meat is still on the menu of certain restaurants.

We are available for informative presentations at company events, in front of your class, at your society event or at a trade fair. We are also often found at our info stand at exhibits and movie screenings. We know very well that people only protect what they know and, as such, it is our goal to teach them as much as we can about sharks, in the hope that they join us in our cause.

This is how you can help us and sharks

We regularly need assistants and speakers for events, projects or presentations. If you can work with us on an honorary basis, or lend a helping hand then we would be thrilled to hear from you.

Any donations or sponsorships are naturally also gladly accepted. All info’s regarding the ways in which you can help SHARKPROJECT are available here:
