  • On May 29, 2016, a great white shark bit Maria while swimming at Big Corona beach in Corona del Mar, CA. Rather than be bitter from this experience,  Maria has dedicated herself to learning as much as possible about sharks & the ocean with the help of the Shark Stewards team. As an athlete ,fitness trainer, and mother, Maria is now inspiring others to save sharks and the oceans.  Please Join us!

Our Ocean

  • The oceans are at risk. Sharks are overfished and plastics pollute, killing marine life and destroying reefs. We must learn to co-exist with marine life. If we want to continue surfing, swimming, sailing and enjoying the bounty of the ocean we need to protect the ocean.  Shark Stewards is an advocate for healthy oceans through education and policy. It is our responsibility to keep the ocean clean, healthy, and preserve it for generations to come. That's why we run for sharks!
