Sharks Can't Use a Pencil, But . . .

Sharks for the Future Notebooks
Sharks for the Future Notebooks

Notebooks developed as part of our Sharks for the Future campaign are helping to write a more promising future for Indonesia’s sharks--and it's reefs. Lined writing paper is sandwiched between smaller versions of the eye-catching posters developed to promote the campaign; these notebooks both help get the message out about the importance of sharks and give the students of Raja Ampat a much needed educational tool.

As is the case in many remote or impoverished regions, school supplies can be difficult to come by in Raja Ampat. So, when developing our shark conservation plan, I made a point to include educational resources for the kids. All students who participated in the art and writing contests we recently held will receive these notebooks and a bookmark, both featuring images and messages about the need for shark conservation. Additional notebooks will be distributed over the next month to even more students.

Sharks and their reef homes will benefit from the heightened awareness, and the students will benefit from our conservation strategy. It’s a definite win-win!
