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 healthy. 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 7th, 2014 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 sharks.

Philip Matich, PhD candidate from Florida International University (FIU), will be presenting.  His presentation “Bull sharks of the Shark River Estuary” focuses on the misperceptions of sharks, their importance in the environment, how his research fits into shark conservation, and how citizens can help protect sharks.

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 raffle to raise money for the Shark Savers SharkCount Program.  So don’t forget to bring some cash!!
