About Rette den Hai e. V.

Rette den Hai e. V. (Save the shark) is a nonprofit organization founded in 2008 by Dr. Folkart Schweizer and devoted to the active protection and conservation of sharks. Some 200 of the approximately 500 species of shark around the world are endangered or already on the brink of extinction. Sharks are at the top of the food chain and are critical to the ecological balance of the oceans, and thus to the maintenance of the entire oceanic ecosystem. Human beings also benefit when ocean habitats are kept intact.
