Meaning & Purpose

The Project Hiu Shark bracelet is an adjustable rope bracelet with a stainless steel shark fin charm. The intent and aim of the bracelet is to help raise awareness and financial aid and continue its 'Mission' of improving the health of our oceans, by starting with those responsible for its deterioration.

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 ex- shark fishermen 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.

      Nice, durable bracelet!

      Shipping was very fast and well packaged. I've been wearing the bracelet for a few weeks nonstop now. It sits flush and therefore doesn't annoy you while you're doing stuff. Despite not taking special care, there is not a single silver-colored scratch on the black metal and the band dries fast after swimming or showering and the knots are tight enough so it doesn't loosen. great quality - and it helps spread the word when people notice it and you tell them about project hiu, the fishermen, their children and the awesome work Madison is doing..

      Great!

      The bracelet is very light-weight and fits perfect. I ordered the small and was a bit worried it might be too big but it fit perfectly. It also does not loosen with extended wear which is great!
