Shark Saturdays -- the Good Kind!

Tom Sergent has successfully kept shark products out of the restaurants in Rockford, Illinois, spends countless hours educating children about sharks as a volunteer for Iemanya Oceanica and is always available to help and coach others who want to get involved with shark conservation.

Tom's latest effort to educate his community will take place on Saturday, November 14th at the Discovery Center Children's Museum. If you live in or around Rockford, Illinois, please come by to show your support!

  1. This sounds like a great event. We definitely need to better educate our youth about the issues surrounding sharks and their possible extinction. Do you have any more info on this event and how they went about setting it up? I would love to try and get something like this in place in Philadelphia, PA!
