Promote the Asian Shark Conservation shark sighting database, thereby providing critical data on the shark population in Asia Pacific, collating and validating periodically the information for submission to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red list process.
Initiate a jetty survey to monitor and report on shark finning activities within Asian waters, geographically recording their locations. Specifically identify where these encroach on recognized marine protection areas (MPAs).
Liaise with international and local government bodies for the introduction or amendment of regulations and law to protect shark species and promote marine diversity as a result.
Liaise with recognized organizations (Coral Triangle Initiative/Project Aware/WWF) to promote and enhance existing projects.
Identify and actively campaign for further MPAs.
Implement a shark tagging scheme to monitor the migratory patterns and thereby identify the effectivness of the existing or proposed marine protected areas.
Specific species targeting for in depth analysis and conservation targeting.
Obtain and maintain a high media profile for the cause and ensure factual reporting of progress is maintained, along with maintaining an information media highway demonstrating clearly the systematic and continual persecution of the Asian shark species.
Educate and enlist the help of the general public, the diving community, business & industry and the media with public promotion, events and demonstrations where suitable.
