Every purchase from Marine Life Mission directly saves an animal, which you will adopt and track their life steps from your phone.
Whale sharks are equipped with GPS-ForLife™. These devices save lives! They allow the scientific community to advance the species preservation efforts.
The best part, you get to track your whale shark from your phone and follow the journey!
You will receive with your purchase a personalized identification card of the adopted animal along with a GPS tracker access so you can follow the journey of your whale shark.
Our mission is to scale GPS-ForLife™. This is a technology that helps marine biologists save ocean's life.
When you join Marine Life Mission you're contributing to the scientific community to tackle the largest destruction our planet is facing - the marine life devastation.
Revert the damage caused by human activity to the oceans, and live in peace and harmony with nature.
Whale sharks have increasingly become victims of fin hunters. Fins are commonly used in parts of Asia as a luxury culinary item. The search for this product has increased over the last few decades. This is arguably one of the most brutal and unnecessary practice, as fins have no nutritional value, and the shark meat is usually discarded.
By tagging whale sharks, marine biologists have been able to record important data that support preservation studies and protection legislation. In 2011, for example, the US prohibited the movement of shark fins through US ports. Many other countries followed suit, like Canada, Palau and Taiwan.
Since whale sharks don't have natural predators, they are considered top predators. In ecosystems where top-level predators become extinct, the number of the creatures they prey on increases dramatically.
Our big-finned friends are crucial to keeping the ocean teeming with plankton. Overgrowth of plankton will affect all plants and animals in the ocean, since algal blooms cause toxins that are harmful to fish, shellfish, mammals, birds, and all animals that eat them, including us humans.

Transmitter setup methods are used to not harm the animals, wound its shell or skin, or raise the chances of being trapped. In addition, having a device does not impact their feeding, migration, and reproduction.
There are many organizations working to protect and preserve Marine Life, but we have found that those located in underdeveloped countries are the ones that suffer the most with funding. While the problem is global, and we concentrate our efforts mostly on developed countries, we will not get anywhere near to the solution.
Although the funds are not available in these areas of the world, the will and energy from marine biologists, researchers, volunteers, etc., is as big as from anywhere in the world. In fact, after visiting and meeting with countless people from the field, we feel confident to say that marine biologists and researchers from these countries are within the most resourceful people we ever met.
