Advocate Apparel Inspired by tiger sharks (Galeocerdo cuvier)

Tiger sharks are classified by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as “Near Threatened”, and thus, research, education and outreach is essential to ensuring healthy populations. As one of the ocean’s largest predators, these critical species sit at the top of the food chain, helping to regulate the delicate balance of populations of those beneath in the ecosystem. Decreased populations can result in trophic cascades, impacting the abundance and behavior of other species lower on the food chain.

Multiple research methods have shown that some species of sharks have declined in population by 90% or more during the last several decades in areas where they were formerly abundant. These declines are due to direct targeting in commercial fisheries, mostly for their fins and sometimes meat. Additionally, sharks are often caught unintentionally as bycatch in many other fisheries, caught and killed in some recreational fisheries (unlike catch and release), and may also be impacted by humans more indirectly through threats like habitat loss, pollution, and human-driven declines in the fish species sharks rely on for food.

"We are so proud of our collaboration with Waterlust. Not only does their support help enable our shark conservation research, but the apparel itself is a walking billboard for marine conservation. I love it when people on the street stop to ask me about my tiger shark board shorts. It's an opportunity to start a conversation about the wonders and perils faced by sharks and how the average person can help make a difference.”

Julie S (Cincinnati, OH, US)
Love this line of leggings…!

Great material and well made overall…and as a scuba diver, they are perfect for diving trips, workouts, hikes, yoga, and more. Bonus, you can cut to the length that works best for you. Totally customizable, especially for you taller or shorter ladies.
Order these! It’s for a good cause too!

Jessica Miller (Lake Mary, FL, US)

Waterlust seriously has the most comfortable and flattering leggings around. I now have two pairs (sun-kissed sea and now Tiger Shark). I paddleboard and dive, and I wear my leggings for both. They're comfortable, quick dry, and super cute.

Second pair

I love these so much I had to buy a spare pair!

Grant Brickner (San Diego, CA, US)
Tiger Shark Leggings

I’m fair skinned and I bought them for sun protection for multiple dives in Hawaii. It’s next to impossible to find a light colored legging for men. They fit me great and are very smooth. The fact they are made from recycled plastics AND it helps fund research for Tiger sharks sold me. I also bought the board shorts and really like both. Very well made products! I found a very cool long sleeved white rash guard with a grey Tiger shark image to go with them and now I’m UV protected and well coordinated under my scuba gear. Who knows, maybe I’ll attract a Tiger!
