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.”

Tiger Shark Top

I love this top (and the leggings!) They are so comfortable and they are constructed so well. Tiger Sharks are my spirit animal and I love this set!

Robyn Cates (Kaneohe, HI, US)
Lovely top

Nice material, true to size, looks great!

Allie (Gainesville, FL, US)

This is my new favorite bathing suit/workout top! I love surfing, stand-up paddle boarding, and scuba diving, and this top stays secure while doing any of those. It is super comfy, cute, and makes a pretty cool Halloween costume with the tiger shark pants! 10/10

Thena (Statesboro, GA, US)

I received this as a giveaway prize from Instagram and it is hands-down the coolest sports/swimwear piece I have ever seen. I love that it can be reversable and multi-functional, so I can wear it when I'm swimming or roller skating! My parents (who are both dive instructors) ADORED the tiger shark print just as much as I did, and we're all really impressed with the efforts Waterlust makes toward environmental stewardship. Thank you, Waterlust! I will be purchasing from you many times again! ☺️

Perfect for divers!

I’m a dive master and love the coverage and support these give me at work. I highly recommend for anyone who has a active lifestyle.

Rebecca Nadon (Waterford, MI, US)
Love it!

I bought a XS/S since I'm a 34 C. I was a little worried that it would be a little too snug, but it was a really good fit! I'm a big shark fan and loved the pattern too. The material is nice and soft. And it's cool that it's so versatile as a sports bra/workout top/ bathing suit top and reversible. Definitely recommend:)
