Whale shark identification


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 8th, 2013 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.

Samantha Whitcraft from Shark Savers will be presenting. Topics will include: Shark ecology (habitat and behavior), current research, “Shark Manners” (what we should and should not do when we see sharks locally), and what we all can do to protect shark populations world wide.

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 a silent auction to raise money for the Shark Savers SharkCount Program. Our silent auction will include scuba certification classes, DSDs, boat passes, and art work just to name a few. So don’t forget to bring some cash!!
