Big Blue Conservation - Swim For Sharks

Where does the money go?

Every year we donate the money raised to a global and local organization. Last year we supported international charity Shark Guardian who travel to schools around Thailand to education children about sharks. The other half was then given to our local Koh Tao Whaleshark charity, which is looking at data collecting more about our local Whaleshark population. Plus tagging a few inviduals in hopes of finding out more about the migration of our local Sharks.

Who are Shark Guardian & why do we support them?Shark-Guardian-Logo

If you are on Koh Tao on for August, come join us in the swim around Nang Yuan. If you are unable to make the main event, pop by after 7pm at the Big Blue Bar, and get the chance to win some great prizes such as spa vouchers, gym membership and dive equipment!

If you know anyone swimming in the fundraiser, show your support by sponsoring him or her. Every little bit counts and will go towards the campaign against shark finning or shark presentations for school children.

It all started on evening at the bar, with two Big Blue dive instructors thinking of ideas to raise awareness about shark finning. They organized a swim around Nang Yuan for them and 19 other swimmers, raising a total of 17,000 thai baht.

The swim was organized the following year, and has now become a annual event with participation from many diving locals across Koh Tao. Last year we hit a new record of 120,000 baht in donations with a total of 61 swimmers!

This year we are hoping to beat this record, and have just as many people support the cause at this year’s swim!
