Sharks have been around for millions of years. They play a vital role in our ecosystem and are responsible for helping to keep our oceans health. But did you know that many species of sharks are threatened with extinction?
In honor of the shark, Pura Vida Divers will be hosting a Social Night on February 13th, 2015 to raise awareness for sharks. This is a FREE event!
It doesn’t matter if you’re a diver, surfer or beach goer, everyone is welcome to attend. So join us for an evening of socializing, delicious food, and the biodiversity of life here in our own backyard.
Andrea Whitaker, REEF Fish Surveyor and Pura Vida staff member, will be presenting. Her presentation focuses on shark identification and the importance to protect sharks by educating, enlisting and enabling divers and other marine enthusiasts to become active ocean stewards and citizen scientists.
Our team will be providing drinks and appetizers, and guests are welcomed to bring a small covered dish of food to the Social Night. This way everyone is sure to have their favorite dish. This is not a requirement! If you are unable to bring a dish, please do not let the dish prevent you from coming.
We will also have a 50/50 cash drawing and shark cut outs to raise money for the FAU Foundation for shark research and the Adopt a Shark Program. So don’t forget to bring some cash!!
