I am a Shark Friend

As a new concept of conservation, the Shark Friend program will be focusing on research to attract sharks and promote Shark as a medium that able to contribute to our societies, which mean that shark programs will generate the funding for the needy.
The key to protecting sharks is not to enact heavy laws or start wars, but to create awareness through long term and integrative education and provide eco-tourism economic benefit to the locals.
