  • A conventional tool to educate and raise awareness.
  • Your protecting the health of our oceans for future generations and loved ones to enjoy.
  • Generate conversation and spread awareness about a meaningful cause.
  • We are creating change by working with our ‘enemies’ apposed against them.

This flag does much more than just blow in the wind - (A Flag of hope, value and impact)

The Project Hiu Donor Flag is so much more than a 'flag'. The funds raised from this donation provides a significant impact in our community of shark fishermen. We do not simply donate this money however, with our strategic investments into new sustainable assets, like our waste management program, we are able to employ our now ex-shark fishermen to collect and recycle ocean plastic. 

To justify just how impactful this purchase is we have broken down the following cost of living for a fishermen and his family for perspective. The following figures show on average the monthly expenses incurred for a shark fishermen in our community;

  • 1 fishermen on an average trip will get paid $200 AUD for 1 month of fishing in illegal and highly hostile waters.
  •  On average each fishermen supports up to 6 family members with this wage
  • The cost of this flag for us is $12.50 + shipping (est $20), with these expenses set aside we are able to donate $467.50 to support the family and incomes of our fishermen
  • Your donation will effectively employ and support two fishermen, a total of 12 family members for 1 entire month, prevent sharks from being finned and finally re-purpose a fishermen to clean ocean plastic.  

Transparency 

A core goal that has been set from day one of starting Project Hiu was to be 100% transparent with Our Crew. Our team know all too well the feeling of blindly giving to an organisation hoping the intentions and actions are taken out as proposed. Our goal is to breakdown these barriers and invite you 'The Crew Member' along this journey. By purchasing a Project Hiu product or donating, you will be accepted into a community dedicated to updating via email and social platforms on annual goals, progression and benchmarks, you will also gain access to first hand interviews of community members their feedback on the impact Project Hiu and its Crew Members is having on their lives. Please refer to 'Join The Crew' section for further reference to  where we are investing your donation/ purchase funds.

Post purchase process:

  1. You purchase/donate
  2. We allocate funds towards annual impact goals (Refer to 'Join The Crew' for more...)
  3. You receive constant updates on goal progress and community impact via email and social updates.

Empowerment & Responsibility

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.

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.

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.
