Today is Giving Tuesday, a day meant to drive support for non-profit organizations and the important causes they’re working on. In honor of our dedicated non-profit partners, we’re doubling our donations from 15% of profits to 30% today. Keep reading to learn more about our non-profit partners and the work they are doing every single day:
ATLANTIC WHITE SHARK CONSERVANCY
It’s no secret that great whites are misunderstood and are mistakenly seen as killing machines. Atlantic White Shark Conservancy is committed to researching great whites in our waters to better understand their behavior so humans and sharks can coexist peacefully. You can support AWSC with your purchase of the Great White Shark Clasp (including the bronze edition), Half Great White Clasp, and Great White Shark Ring.
WHALE & DOLPHIN CONSERVATION
Whale & Dolphin Conservation (WDC) conducts and funds scientific research projects on whales and dolphins across the world. With many species facing an uncertain future due to human activity, their work is more important now than ever. Further WDC’s conservation efforts by purchasing the Whale Clasp and Dolphin Clasp.
MASSACHUSETTS AUDUBON SOCIETY
Mass Audubon works statewide to protect and conserve the Bay State’s natural areas. We partner with their Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary on our Turtle Clasp to support their work with sea turtles on Cape Cod, including rescuing for cold-stunned turtles in Cape Cod Bay.
Nakawe Project has been spanning the globe to film and document the the best evidence to show the steady decline of the worlds biggest fisheries. They have met and collaborated with scholars, artists, colleagues, fishermen and marine biologists & explorers to get their accounts in front and behind the fishing nets. Support their work with your purchase of our Hammerhead Clasp.
THE WATERMEN PROJECT
The Watermen Project, a Swiss nonprofit organization, approaches shark research differently than most. Instead of photographing and tagging sharks from large metal diving cages or noisy boats, the researchers quietly free dive with sharks, taking care not to startle or stress out the animals with loud noises from scuba equipment or strange objects. Support their work with your purchase of our Hammerhead Necklace.
SHARK & RESEARCH CONSERVATION PROGRAM
Say hello to Cape Clasp’s newest partner, the Shark & Research Conservation Program (SRC) at University of Miami. SRC performs cutting-edge research on sharks while engaging the next generation of shark scientists with its youth programs. Support SRC by gifting the brand-new Hammerhead Shark Ring this holiday season.
CENTER FOR COASTAL STUDIES
The Center for Coastal Studies located in Provincetown is playing an important role in conservation efforts in our waters, including humpback whale and right whale research and freeing entangled animals. Wear your support for whales with our Whale Necklace.
CAPE COD NATIONAL SEASHORE
Henry David Thoreau once said "A man may stand there and put all America behind him,” when talking about the Outer Cape’s beaches. In 1961, JFK signed a bill to establish the Cape Cod National Seashore, preserving 43,000 acres for wildlife and recreation. Help preserve the Cape’s natural spaces for generations to come with your purchase of the the Seashore Pin, Half Cape Clasp, and the Whydah Gally Clasp (which is the perfect gift for pirate fans!).
THE TRUSTEES OF RESERVATIONS
The Trustees of Reservations protects 25,000 acres across Massachusetts for everyone to enjoy. Your purchase of the Martha’s Vineyard Clasp and the Nantucket Clasp help The Trustees further their mission and manage historic properties, woodlands, and gardens across the state.
Based in the Bahamas, the Bimini Sharklab works to better understand sharks and rays, educate future scientists, and change public perception of the species. 15% of profits of our Shark Fin Necklace are donated directly to the Sharklab.
