Whale sharks are the largest sharks in the world – truly the biggest ﬁsh in the sea! Like human ﬁngerprints, whale sharks have a unique pattern of spots that allow individual sharks to be identiﬁed. Whale sharks ﬁlter tiny plankton through their massive gills. The distribution of whale sharks points to the presence of plankton and serves as an indicator of overall ocean and ecosystem health. Poor ﬁshing practices threaten whale sharks when the capture methods unintentionally target the whale shark, an event referred to as bycatch, and injure or kill the animal. Marine debris, including fishing gear, cans, plastic bags and bottles, often ends up in oceans and other waterways, endangering whale sharks through the risk of entanglement or ingestion of this toxic and indigestible garbage.
These bracelets are handcrafted from recycled marine rope. Each piece of salvaged rope is unique with slight variations in color and condition, caused by natural weathering. All bracelets are 100% waterproof. Join us in supporting this important cause by helping spread awareness of marine debris and its negative impacts on the environment.
Each bracelet purchased helps keep our oceans clean & represents the life of a marine animal saved from entanglement.
