Dirk Verbeuren, the drummer for heavy metal band Megadeth, is cranking up the volume with our Shark Free initiative. Dirk is our latest Shark Free Ambassador who wants endangered and threatened sharks out of everyday products like shampoo, sunscreen, and moisturizer. When asked about Dirk's interest in protecting sharks, here is what he had to say:
“The plight of sharks is one we should all be touched by. These wonderful apex predators, incredibly vital to our oceans, are being hurled towards extinction by humans in the most disgraceful ways. Rob Stewart's eye-opening documentary affected me deeply, and today I am proud to join The Sharkwater Foundation as an ambassador. I want to help spread a message of conservation and care toward sharks and all the other sentient creatures we share our planet with. We need them around. Humanity can do much better, and if we all work together, I firmly believe we will succeed in creating a better future for Mother Earth and its inhabitants.” - Dirk Verbeuren
