Hello, my name is Curtis Walker and this is my misssion to protect the ocean and its endangered wildlife, especially the top of the foodchain, SHARKS.

 

I have been a surfer my whole life and have even had some encounters with sharks over the years in and around the water, the ocean is a playground for us humans, surfing, scooba diving, swimming and even a day out on the boat with friends and family is a day to remember!

However with the demand for seafood from the developing world, reaching a massive 7,655,957,369 in population, over fishing, pollution and many other cases of we unfortunately have been doing more harm to the ocean than good, that massively impacts the world as a whole.

I wish to start to contrubute where I can with the marine life and especially sharks, who at the top of the food chain, are a vital part of the natural order of the oceans eco system, 1 in 4 shark species are NOW threatened with extinction, this is something we must do what we can to prevent, with your help with a donation here today, you will help the organisations that are directly working to prevent this from happening!

This is just one way we can help with the amazing humans helping with non for profit causes, in the best interest of our amazing oceans, donations to these wonderful causes are vital to their ongoing amazing work, I will do what I can with this opportunity to raise funds to donate to the organisations to help them continue their great work!

I’m excited to announce I’ve been selected as an official cast member of the socially conscious (and award-winning) TV series Adventure All Stars. Produced by the acclaimed Charity TV Global, this ground-breaking media format provides a platform for me to raise funds and exposure for a philanthropic cause I’m passionate about. Pre-filming I’m proud to be raising awareness for Wildlife & Environmental Conservation efforts in Australia.

 

Why am I fundraising and how can you help me?

You don’t know what you’ve got til’ it’s gone. Ask anyone in the world what comes to mind when they think of Australia and you can safely bet they will mention koalas, kangaroos and incredible natural landscapes. Despite fondly identifying as the home of an incredibly diverse range of flora and fauna species Australia has lost more animals to extinction than any other country in the world. Since the year 2000 over 7.47 million hectares of habitat for threatened species has been destroyed and currently in excess of 1800 Australian animals, plants and ecosystems are listed under our national environmental law as threatened with extinction. Our Great Barrier Reef is one of the world’s most biologically diverse ecosystems and our northern oceans are some of the last remaining healthy tropical seas. A staggering 80% of marine species in our Southern oceans are found nowhere else on Earth, so let's band together and save these unique species. By donating to my fundraising campaign you’re helping me to highlight the importance of educating the community on Environmental Sustainability and conserving our natural wonders.

 

Net proceeds raised throughout this project will be granted to the Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife https://www.fnpw.org.au/
