biologist Dr. Ryan Kempster founded the Support Our Sharks (SOS)
Ocean Conservation Society in 2010 with a
mission to support healthy oceans by promoting better protection for
sharks and their close relatives the rays and skates.
SOS is a science-based conservation group raising
awareness to the
threats faced by sharks (and rays) in the 21st century. Dr.
Kempster established SOS with the goal of educating the public by
inspire interest in protecting these important animals. We utilise a mixture of
on-the-ground and online
and peer-reviewed scientific
to encourage better protection for sharks and rays, whilst also
promoting better protection of our delicately-balanced ocean
ecosystems. By working closely with the general
public and a wide range of specialist groups including scientists,
divers and politicians, we are able to bring about positive change
for sharks and their relatives worldwide.
