Sharktoberfest 2010 in San Francisco

From the kids in Grass Valley who helped us build our extraordinary longline exhibit for the California Academy of Science to the fishermen who helped us hang it, Sharktoberfest 2010 was a fantastic success for our healthy ocean and our sharks.

A special thanks to ‘Sherman’s Lagoon’ creator Jim Toomey who flew in for the weekend to help us get our creative juices flowing at the Farallones Marine Sanctuary at Crissy Field in San Francisco. And a very special thanks also goes to Ryan Thomas whose artistic talent went far to thrill the kids and adults alike with his face paintings of sharks. And now, our hard work is starting to pay off, with State Bill AB376 in the works, California may become the first state to ban sharkfin products!
