Make a Difference

ReShark is an international, collective effort of over 60 conservation organizations, aquariums, government agencies, and more, dedicated to recovering threatened sharks and rays around the world.

Zebra shark populations in the wild have drastically declined due to habitat loss and depletion from the shark fin trade. This species is now listed as “Endangered” on the IUCN Red List. The StAR Project, led by the West Papua Provincial Government and the Research and Innovation Agency of Indonesia, seeks to reestablish a healthy population of zebra sharks by bringing aquarium-bred egg cases to hatcheries in protected areas of Raja Ampat. There, the sharks will be properly reared and tagged for release.

The proven success of breeding paired with the husbandry expertise of accredited aquariums, like Georgia Aquarium, is critical in the recovery of this species.
