The first of the expert webinars will be held on the 27th July, 2022. The founding partners will provide an overview of the shark and ray crisis, SARRI and the toolbox, and what to expect in the coming months and years.
Attendees will get a flavour of what SARRI has to offer to marine management authorities and shark conservation practitioners, and potential collaboration opportunities, and to ask questions on key aspects of the Initiative.
Please join SARRI's founders on Zoom to learn more on the 27th July at 11 am GMT (9 pm Port Moresby, 6 pm Jakarta, 3 pm Dubai, 1 pm Rome, 8 am São Paulo). The webinar will last roughly 75 mins.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

The second webinar from our SARRI Expert Webinar series is coming up on 25 October. The session will focus on interdisciplinary approaches for understanding and managing shark and ray fisheries and will be led by Dr. Hollie Booth (University of Oxford; Human Dimensions Working Group, IUCN SSC Shark Specialist Group). Dr. Booth will present methods and findings of her PhD research, which can help to devise management strategies for reducing the mortality of endangered sharks and rays as part of a recovery plan, whilst also considering the income and well-being of coastal communities.

Preventing extinctions has been a primary aim of shark and ray conservation for decades, but the numbers don’t lie. These efforts haven’t kept pace with the threats. We all need to raise our level of ambition if we want to reverse the tragic loss of biodiversity in our ocean. More efforts are needed to actively recover depleted populations for the benefit of our ocean and people who depend on it.

Three decades of conservation efforts at a remote coral reef complex in the Philippines have paid off. Today it is one of the most important areas for sharks in the Coral Triangle and supports the highest density of whitetip reef sharks in the world.
