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.”

Sleek & Comfy

I bought these for my husband who, the first time he wore them, liked them so much he refused to take them off for the rest of the day, saying they were more comfortable than even gym shorts. They're soft and sleek, not to mention great looking! He's worn them swimming, kayaking, and even just around the house, and is already looking at his next pair.

Awesome!

My husband loved his tiger shark gear! The shorts were a bit small at first but the exchange for a different size was easy.

Good quality… awesome print

overall quality very good and they look amazing. Unfortunately the price & S&H doesn’t not include import tax and that cost maybe significant. But definitely worth the money and supports an important cause.
