No Australian animal or marine creature captivates our national psyche more than our indigenous sharks. They divide us like no other creature in our ecosystem. The more they diminish in numbers, the more they loom omnipresent in our consciousness.

For collectors

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of Country throughout Australia and their continuing connection to the land, waters, culture, and community. We pay our respects to Elders past and present.
