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.”

Checks all the boxes!

Not only do these look incredibly bad*ss, but they are extremely cozy and practical. I absolutely love these water leggings. AND they support a great cause. Thank you!

So cool

Absolutely yes to the coolest tiger shark leggings which feels as second skin. Ideal for diving in warm waters. Bravo Waterlust for yours causes that strive to protect our blue planet.

Unfortunate shading

I own several pairs of leggings from this company and love them. Unfortunately the shading of this theme is very dark in the crotch area which has drawn unwanted attention.

Beautiful design and performance fit!

I am a first-time Waterlust customer, and the quality of these leggings was immediately evident. The fabric is smooth and what you would expect for gear worn off-shore, not to mention the beautiful tiger shark skin design. The waist band and inseam fit in all the right places. No “muffin top” or short inseam. When I am working our charters, the last thing I want is to be pulling at my leggings. Definitely no concerns about that with these. If you are wondering about size, I bought a Medium (normally a size 8 with a muscular bottom half). I can’t wait to fish these! I will be a returning customer!
