Have You Met Shark Stanley?
What do you do with Shark Stanley? Print and cut him out then take photos of you and him in fun and interesting places around the world!
The photos will be compiled into a booklet where each page contains a matrix of the 20 photos from each respective country. The finished product will showcase the diversity of global support for listing sharks on CITES, with photos from thousands of people taken in iconic places. The hope is that this will swing votes to protect sharks.

Learn More About Shark Stanley:
“Hello friend! My name is Shark Stanley and I am travelling around the world to find friends who will support shark and manta ray protections at the upcoming Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) meeting in March. If you would like to help me with this mission, you can print this picture of me, cut it out, and take a photo with me anywhere you wish. Then please send me this photo along with your name and where you are from! My supporters are compiling your photos from around the world to share on their blog and web pages, and sending them to governments voting at CITES to get their support! Help us reach our goal of finding 50 organizations and celebrities to partner with me, and to collect at least 5000 photos from all 176 CITES countries!”
