So with the big event now over, we can look back on the great success and fun that was had throughout the day, from face painting to fun swimming, fun was had by all.swim4sharks2015

This year we added some new activities to the day, including some activities that were aimed towards the young ones, after all they are the future and the next generation of eco warriors.

Liz from Shark Guardian came over from Phuket to help give a presentation to the children from the local day garden school, plus we had face painting, shark sand sculptures and fun in the pool.swim4sharks22015

The total we raised reached a staggering 130,000 ฿, approximately $3600 which was a new record compared to previous years.

This year we also decided to give the money raised to a new charity organisation, as well as Shark Guardian, which do brilliant work around Asia, we also donated some of the money raised to Sea Shepherd Australia, which will go towards some of their shark conservation based campaigns, like Sunu Gaal, and Apex harmony.

We are pleased with the support of the local community, and look forward to next year, let’s make it bigger and better.swim4sharks32015
