Inspired by and designed to advocate for 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.”

Love ALL things Waterlust!

We our our Waterlust loud and proud! Just got the tiger shark hat in in regular size. Perfect shape for my husband’s regular sized head. We have the whale sharks in the larger size and it is definitely more “spacious”. Accommodates my ponytail well though. Both are badass looking and we love them! - Thanks for doing what you do Waterlust! Save the Oceans!

Love it but....

Love this hat but the front has a spot where the logo is that hurts my head. Can't wear it very long even when I made it bigger.

Love my tiger shark cap

Love my tiger shark cap. Comfy and fits. Looks great. Have been waiting for these for ages. Well done
