SharkSafe Barrier Sponsors and Partners


It is our mission for the SharkSafe BarrierTM  to be deployed worldwide in all areas currently facing the threat of shark attacks.  

We hope to see our innovation moving the world into a greener direction.

SharkSafe Barrier Bottom-up Movement

We realized that local governments are very reluctant to invest public funds on new technologies, no matter how tested they are, so we decided to make our mission everyone’s mission.

We realized that this is no longer a work that can be achieved by a handful of passionate scientists and conservationists, and it must become a global plea to stop the unjustifiable cull of marine life by shark nets and drumlines.
