  • We are creating change by working with our ‘enemies’ apposed against them.
  • On average to save 1 shark = $6.50 USD (What’s your impact?)
  • Over 75,000 + shark fins have been prevented from being caught and sold.

" I love the sea and sharks and would love to see the thrive!   I have been following your work for a while and find it so incredibly inspiring.  Shifting from Shark fishing to shark tourism is a brilliant idea and it could be implemented in many places around the world!  I used to support a large charity fighting for nature for a long time but one day they rang me and said “we need to stop loggers from entering the amazon, would you be interested in helping this project?”  So I asked how they were going to help the loggers that they would put out of work and they didn't have a reply for me.  Being Brazilian, I know the poverty there is in my country, how people have little choice in what job they do.   That day, i saw a crack in the work the charity was doing.  I couldn't put my money in to help them make lives that were already hard, harder- as much as I wanted them to stop the cutting down trees from the Amazon forest.  Thats why Project Hiu is so incredible.  It has a holistic approach, taking the whole community in consideration.  The human factor.  That to me is truly effective! Unfortunately the world is out of whack and the only way to create changes isn't to pull the rug from under the people with the hardest job, but to find a way to improve their lives instead and then give them new, better jobs which will positively affect them and the environment.

I am a tattoo artist and illustrator, with a passion for the sea and its residents, with a soft spot for sharks, the misunderstood beauties of the ocean.  Conservation is high in my list of daily priorities and I am always on the lookout on how to be of service".  - Nara Martins (Volunteer Designer)

JOIN THE CREW - (What side of history will you be on?)

Many shark fishermen in Indonesia depend on extremely volatile and dangerous income streams to provide for their families and loved ones. Today fishermen are forced to travel further and in some cases in illegal water to seek more prosperous grounds, this new threat of prosecution can be combated. By joining The Crew you will be assisting in the investment and acquisition of new 'sustainable income assets' such as; tourism, waste management programs, early learning to better equip the next generation for changing times and finally supporting the community during this transition by suppling food, clean water and any other financial burdens and malnourished necessities incurred from a history of volatile fishing and marine exploitation. 

WHAT ARE WE INVESTING IN? (YOUR IMPACT)

1) A sustainable tourism program, that allows local fishermen to acquire and re-purpose their assets (boats, crew, knowledge, rich biodiversity) to build new independent income streams.  

2) Currently locals have no waste initiative or infrastructure in place, resulting in (HIGH) threats of disease and sickness. Our Crew are investing in waste management programs that employ Xfishermen to collect, recycle and transport waste opposed to entering and being dumped in our oceans. We are also building the first 'toilet block' on the island.

3) Early learning; our crew are investing in a new preschool re-build and learning equipment and curriculums to better prepare future generation for change.

4) During Covid-19 transition has been difficult, by supporting, your allocation of funds will also go toward basic supplies like food (rice, noodles) that are deposited monthly to our community.

Without an apex predator, i.e. sharks a marine ecosystem cannot sustain healthy balance and therefore results in disease spread and infection through fish populations, this inevitably transcends onto land and into our communities a loved ones. 

  • The cost to prevent one shark from being finned is $7.70 AUD
  • The average wage for a shark fishermen is $200 AUD per month or $50 per week
  • A estimated 100,000,000 sharks are killed annually
