SEA LIFE London is proud to sponsor Bite-Back Shark and Marine Conservation

SEA LIFE London supports their mission to make Britain shark fin-free. The practice of shark finning is killing huge numbers of sharks all over the world – many species are already listed as endangered by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN). And why? To make shark fin soup; a dish which is still served in a number of UK restaurants.


In April 2014 SEA LIFE London donated £45,000 to help support Bite-Back over three years. Extra fundraising and events helps keep the momentum going. Last year we took to the streets of Chinatown in London, to protest against the selling of shark fin soup in restaurants. We’re passionate about protecting our sharks and are committed to supporting Bite-Back in all that they do.
