When the buying stops, the killing stops too. Together, we can make a difference.

My Story

We are a team of Year 12 students, currently studying at West Island School. We believe that together, with your help, we can make a difference and raise awareness about shark conversation.  

Hong Kong Shark Foundation (HKSF) is a registered charity dedicated exclusively to shark conservation. We aim to raise awareness about shark conservation, particularly the unsustainable practice of shark finning, and to reduce the consumption of shark products in Hong Kong. 

Why sharks?
As apex predators, sharks are a crucial part of the marine food chain. Removing top predators such as sharks will threaten the delicate balance of ecosystems that are valuable sources of food and key elements In regulating our climate. In the long run, this affects our oceans' ability to absorb carbon, generate oxygen and regulate our climate. With our oceans relentlessly degrading, restoring sharks is crucial to enhancing the resilience of our oceans to climate change. 

Why do we need your help? 
HKSF receives funding primarily from individuals like you and the nature, extent, and success of their efforts are highly dependent on the commitment and support of our supporters and volunteers. HKSF's work is diverse, ranging across the areas of educational programs, corporate social responsibility advocacy, and public awareness-raising.

We need your help because every year, at least 100 million sharks are caught worldwide, 11,000 killed every hour, 190 killed every minute. With over 50% of the world’s shark fin being traded through Hong Kong alone, with your help, today, we have a rare opportunity through our local efforts to make a significant impact on a global scale. Your help can make a difference.
