Shark team one benefit – 2016
Bidding ended july 30th, 2016
I am thrilled to announce an exclusive online event sponsoring @sharkteamone ?
PLEASE SHARE & BID on these gorgeous precious metal and diamond shark pendants to help save real sharks !!!
ALL proceeds from the winning bids go directly to Shark Team One Conservation Projects & Initiatives ??
Shark Team One plays an important role protecting sharks and ocean ecosystems with our conservation initiatives, partner programs, outreach events and seminars.
We also provide conservation, research and citizen science expeditions to local and global destinations where sharks are on the verge of extinction. Proceeds from each trip help stimulate local economies and fund research that in turn helps sharks and our oceans. When nations begin to realize that shark conservation brings much needed money into their economy, many times shark fishing can be turned into shark stewardship. This is what we hope and strive for.
the feather hoops, feather bangle, arrowhead ring, tusk pendant and infinity snake bracelet were available in a previous collection
the dolphin project
in collaboration with her friends’, richard and lincoln o’barry, and the dolphin organization, manon has revamped an ancient greek coin into a unique pendant, proceeds of which are donated to “the dolphin project”
richard o’barry is known for capturing and training dolphins for the tv series flipper. when one of the flipper dolphins died, o’barry made a radical transition to assertively combating the captivity industry. shortly after, he founded the “dolphin project” in 1970, a non-profit organization under the international marine mammal project at earth island institute, to stop dolphin slaughter and exploitation around the globe.
in 2009, his work was chronicled in the academy award winning documentary “the cove” and richard o’barry continues to work for the dolphin organization with much success.
we fully support this important cause and wish richard and team continued success. may the force be with you.
