SharkSafe Barrier Crowdfunding 2019

Our last challenge is to test the SharkSafe Barrier sand anchors for deep sand sea substrates, so that we can anchor on both rocky and deep sand substrates.

For testing the SharkSafe Barrier anchors on sand we need your help to hire the boats, buy the material, pay the commercial divers and monitor the results.

You can make a difference!

Please support us in our effort to keep both people and sharks safe, by replacing sharks cull with a more sustainable alternative!
