HEY GUYS, MR SHARK HERE!
Oh wow do I have a story for you. A little while ago, I met someone ALMOST AS FAMOUS AS ME. Crazy, I know, but it happened.
Here’s a sneak peek…
Before I tell you aaaalll about it, apparently I have to say this bit first:
$1 from the sale of each Mr Shark or Jawesome pieces released on Tuesday 7th July (that’s tomorrow) will go to the Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors and their Grey Nurse Shark conservation initiative.
Yep, we’re celebrating Shark Week 2015 (which is on right now) by donating $1 from our Shark Week pieces to help conserve Queensland’s Grey Nurse Shark population, which is critically endangered by the way. Totally not cool. There’s more info on the Wildlife Warriors here and you should check it out, because they do super great work.
NOW BACK TO ME.
A little while ago, I had this great idea. Why don’t we celebrate Shark Week (the most important week of the entire year) with a super cool person that could help us look after all the endangered sharks out there? We would make some shark-themed clothes, and donate $1 from every one of those pieces sold. The obvious candidate was my new BFF, Bindi Irwin, and the Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors.
Bindi isn’t a shark herself, but she’s cool enough that she’s like an honorary shark. My friend Bindi invited me and the people who work for me onto her conservation boat, Croc One, to chat about how we can work together to save the critically endangered Queensland population of grey Nurse Sharks. We also released a turtle back into the ocean. Turtles aren’t quite as cool as sharks, but they’re ok, so check it out:
Basically, the Wildlife Warriors locate and protect the Grey Nurse Shark marine nurseries, looking after all the teeny tiny baby sharkies and making sure they grow up healthy. That is SUPER IMPORTANT to make sure the future is filled with these glorious, majestic, very handsome, and smart creatures.
Ok, let’s go over that first bit again. You might have forgotten, because seeing Bindi and I together in the same place was so cool it just filled up your entire brain, erasing all the other information in there.
$1 from every sale of the Mr Shark and Jawesome pieces will go to Wildlife Warriors to help them save my Grey Nurse Shark family. The Mr Shark pieces are, obviously, much better than the Jawesome ones, but the Jawesome pieces are okay too I guess – the important thing is to make sure you grab one, because they’re great and so are sharks.
