Dutch children raise much money for sharks


This 2015 video is called Shark asks several divers for help.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV:

Children raise over 600,000 euros for sharks

Today, 18:54

Children have collected 621,780 euros for shark protection. This happened in the context of the Zapp Your Planet action of the WWF and NPO Zapp, the public broadcaster’s children’s branch. The action was concluded with an action day at the Mediapark in Hilversum.

Every year, Zapp and the WNF have Dutch children raising money for an endangered species, but the amount has never been so high. About sharks the WNF says that every year 100 million are killed for their fins or their meat.

Thousands of children today brought the contributions they have collected over the past months. Some children had collected deposit bottles, others had sold lemonade or chocolate eggs.

The collected money will be used, inter alia, to make areas in the sea more shark-friendly. There is also a global campaign for people not to eat shark meat.
