Fintastic Friday

Fintastic Friday, an annual occasion occurring on the second Friday of May, was instituted to promote awareness and champion the conservation of sharks and other elasmobranchs. Established in 1995 by Ruth Musgrave's organization, Whale Times, the event seeks to alter public perceptions of sharks from fear and animosity to affection and admiration.

Fintastic Friday underscores the prevalent misunderstandings, demonization, and underappreciation of sharks. Recognizing their crucial role in the ocean ecosystem, the event emphasizes that sharks serve as apex predators, regulating species lower in the food chain. Additionally, they play a vital role in nutrient cycling across various locations and depths.
