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.”

Great Quality

I love my new sun suit! I won it in a giveaway and it fits perfectly. The quality of the suit is super nice and the zip in the back is very practical!

Great Customer Service and Perfect Sun Protection!

My daughter is 5'2" and about 100 pounds and I figured an extra small would be perfect for her but it was too tight across the shoulders. The exchange process was super easy and they sent her out a small and it fit like a glove (now I know that I'm definitely not a small, lol). Love the weight of the fabric, fit is great, and I'm so excited for her to have this super cute suit to wear on warm water dive/snorkel trips. We'll be testing it out in Thailand next week! Thanks so much!

Camilla is a lifesaver

I had an issue and Camilla went above and beyond to help me out. The suit looks amazing!

Great suit in a great pattern!

The quality of this suit really impressed me: the construction, design, and the fabric itself, which is much more substantial than you might expect. I am 5’0” and under 100 pounds and got the xs. It fits fine (although I feel the rear coverage could be a tad more substantial). I was worried that the sleeves might be too long and although they are a tad long for my rather short arms I can still get the thumb holes to align properly. I plan to sue this on extended snorkel sessions and I have no doubt it will prove its worth.
