Shout Out For Sharks

What is Shout Out For Sharks?

First News has teamed up with Bite-Back Shark & Marine Conservation, a UK charity to launch Shout Out for Sharks. We are on a mission to change the image of sharks and highlight the urgent need for shark and marine conservation.

Read about the campaign in First News to find out more.


Shout Out For Sharks is a cross-curricular project suitable for upper KS2 and KS3 pupils. The pack is made up of a series of lessons that support learning in English, science, geography and citizenship. Pupils will investigate key questions and build up knowledge to understand issues and respond to them. Pupils will then apply the skills they’ve accumulated in a shark and marine conservation project as part of a Bite-Back national campaign.

The pack is designed to:

  • deepen pupils’ knowledge and understanding of sharks
  • develop a wider understanding of the need for shark conservation to protect the ocean’s ecosystems
  • provide the opportunity for pupils to engage with a national shark and marine conservation campaign to make changes
  • enable teachers to integrate shark conservation projects into the curriculum
