SHOPPING WITH A PURPOSE: NAKAWE PROJECT COLLABORATIONS

Makos are a widely consumed and sought after species- meat for consumption, oil for vitamins and fins for shark fin soup. It is commonly found on menus in some countries. For example, FISH TACOS in Mexico contain Mako and/or Blue Shark meat.
The IUCN lists Makos as “vulnerable.”

Without protection, they may quickly be decimated. And like other large marine predators, shark meat is contaminated with mercury and can be toxic.

GOT MERCURY?

We’ve teamed up with Turtle Island Restoration Network to launch our “Got Mercury?” campaign, with the aim of educating Mexican citizens about the health risks associated with eating shark meat. We want to engage with the public, and provide them with the education and tools they need to make informed decisions.

SUPPORT GAME OVER FISHING DOCUMENTARY

HELP US HERE

For months, Nakawe Project has been talking about our Game Over Fishing Documentary. Now in it’s post production stages, we just need one final push to complete it. With your help we can do this. Now it’s on our hands to take action and #PlayItRight for our oceans.

It will not only complete our documentary, it will also aid in it’s distribution and screening in schools, universities and coastal communities that are severely affected by overfishing.

We encourage everyone to share, spread, donate and join us!
