Supporting the Shark Trust

Diverse Travel is delighted to be supporting the work of the Shark Trust as a Corporate Patron.

Corporate Patrons provide a valuable boost to the work of leading UK-based conservation charity, the Shark Trust. The Trust team works globally to safeguard the future of sharks, and their close cousins the skates and rays, engaging with a global network of scientists, policymakers, conservation professionals, businesses and supporters to further shark conservation.

Working together

Since 2014, we have operated as a specialist tour operator, committed to offering our guests high quality, sustainable scuba diving holidays worldwide. We’re delighted to celebrate our 10th year of business by becoming a Corporate Patron of the Shark Trust. This is an exciting partnership for Diverse and our guests. Working together with the Shark Trust will enable us both to widen engagement and encourage divers and snorkellers to get involved in shark conservation.

As a business, we will be donating on behalf of every person who books a holiday with us to contribute towards the Shark Trust’s vital shark conservation initiatives around the world. We will also be working together with the Trust to inspire divers, snorkellers and other travellers to take an active role – at home and abroad – in citizen science projects and other activities. 

We are looking forward to sharing more with you about our plans with the Shark Trust over the coming months!

"Sharks are truly at the heart of every diver and at Diverse Travel, we absolutely share that passion. There is nothing like seeing a shark in the wild – it’s a moment that stays with you forever!"
Holly Bredin
Diverse Travel Sales & Marketing Manager

Expect to see a shark or ray? Please download the Shark Trust app (see more below) and log your valuable sightings!

The Shark Log database was launched in 2008. There were over 1,000 recordings of sharks, skates and rays from 60 species in 2023.

The aim of this flagship project is to generate important data for researchers and conservationists working with sharks around the world. Your sightings can help in proposing sustainable management measures for species.

"This is an exciting partnership and we’re thrilled to be working with Diverse Travel to enable more divers and travellers to get involved with shark conservation. Sharks face considerable conservation challenges but, through collaboration and collective action, we can secure a brighter future for sharks and their ocean home. This new partnership takes us one more valuable step towards that goal.”
Paul Cox
Shark Trust CEO

Citizen science is where the general public helps collect data for scientific projects. The Shark Trust App brings together five fantastic citizen science projects in one place, allowing users to report: shark sightings, eggcases, basking sharks, angling catches, and entanglement incidents. Through these projects, anyone with an interest in nature, wildlife and conservation can contribute to important research and have a lot of fun along the way!

If you’re interested in sharks, skates and rays and want to help move forward research and conservation, the Shark Trust App is for you. Everyone from the occasional beachgoer to seasoned divers and anglers can get involved.
