TRANSPARENCY

WHAT'S MY ACTUAL IMPACT? 

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.

(STORY & MEANING) 

Artist:  España Garcia Feucht

"I approached this project with the idea that Id be portraying sharks being saved, but soon realized through the story of what “Project Hiu” really is, that the fisherman communities of these South East Asian islands also needed saving from the devastating entity that the shark finning industry is… I began with researching traditional tattoo art work of the region, and the story telling style of ancient cave paintings. The story begins with the many hands reaching for the shark, as many reach for them through means of fascination and or commodity. Following the reaching hands are the many hooks used to fish them. Above the hooks and on the dorsal and pectoral fins is traditional tattoo art work, and flowers of the region. Then the story begins with people celebrating their catch, and their own safe return. They hold shark fins, and display the killings they risked their lives for in order to provide income for their families. Above that is the representation of water where a small boat carrying tourist/outsiders look on with shock at what they see. Its Madison holding a freshly cut shark fin that illustrates to the onlooker the truth about the shark fin industry. Above her blow changing winds. Then above a circular island is Madison swimming with a shark. Lastly she stands in reconcile with a fisherman, holding hands, with the promise of change, followed by a shark tail filled with tattoo art representing elements of the Project Hiu story".

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.

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.
