DOWNLOAD YOUR COPY OF THE ADVENTURES OF SHARK STANLEY AND FRIENDS

Shark Stanley, the star of a grassroots campaign to protect sharks and rays, was already an international celebrity. Now he’s the hero of a children’s book, too.

The Adventures of Shark Stanley and Friends, available today in a special online release by Shark Defenders and Sage Magazine, follows Stan — a courageous hammerhead shark — and his three companions, Pierre the Porbeagle, Waqi the Whitetip, and Manta Reina, as they navigate human perils through their undersea home. The quartet dodges longlines, harpoons, slime-covered reefs, and garbage patches, along the way discovering how sharks and other predators help keep ecosystems healthy.

The four characters correspond to the four species of sharks and rays to which the Convention on the International Trade of Endangered Species (CITES) will consider granting increased protection at its annual meeting in March. Hammerhead, Oceanic Whitetip, and Porbeagle populations have plummeted in recent years as a result of the shark fin industry, which contributes to the death of up to 73 million sharks every year. Mantas, whose gill rakers are prized in herbal medicine, are in similarly dire straits.

Enter Shark Stanley, the brainchild of Leah Meth, Onon Bayasgalan, and the non-profit Shark Defenders.
