Shark Trust

One of the most unforgettable encounters I have ever had with a wild animal was swimming with a basking shark off the outer Hebrides. Basking sharks were almost hunted to extinction, but are now protected. Unfortunately this isn't the case with all sharks and we are in real danger of losing some of the ocean's most spectacular and important animals. The Shark Trust promotes the study, management and conservation of sharks, skates and rays to help ensure their future survival. Go onto the website to find out about the Great Eggcase Hunt, and help the Trust find out more about the shark, skate and ray populations around our coast.
