Indonesia is also the top shark catching country, with an estimate of 110,000tons caught and traded a year. Shark numbers in some areas have declined more than 90%. This conservation nursery offers an alternative to young sharks being killed. We buy the sharks off the fishermen while they're still alive on the way to the market for trading. The same fishermen that used to kill sharks for fins are now saving them! To date, over 70 sharks have been saved and/or released. All proceeds from this Eco-tour will be channeled towards efforts for saving the sharks. This includes buying them off fishermen and nursing them back to health before being released in the protected waters of Gili Island. Available everyday from 7am to 3pm.
