Visitors of the diving hall at this year’s boot show were excited about the opportunity to win great prizes at the booth of Sam’s Tours Palau. Celebrating 25 years of excellence, the dive center in cooperation with Shark Angels and sponsoring partners offered lottery tickets with the chance to win 600 prizes worth circa 25,000 Euros. Every fifth ticket with a lucky number meant a win and among the prizes were vouchers for hotel & dive packages in Palau, dive computers, regulators and masks from Scubapro, dive lights from Sealife, plush sharks from Indyplush, photos and artwork from renowned underwater photographers and artists, T-Shirts from Shark Angels, apparel from Neptunic, and travel guides and magazines from German media. At the end of the show, Sam’s Tours handed a check with 5,798.14 Euros over to Shark Angels.

Marc Bauman, Vice President of Sam’s Tours, was overwhelmed with the response: “Palau was the first country to establish a shark sanctuary and Sam’s Tours has always been very committed to conservation and shark protection. We are very pleased with the response to the lottery and are proud to be able to sponsor the valuable educational efforts of Shark Angels. We need to reach out to children at a young age in order to make them understand the importance of healty oceans and healthy shark populations.”

Julie Andersen, Founder of Shark Angels, is delighted about the result: “While Shark Angels are well known in North America, we appreciate the awareness generated for our cause in Europe and we hope that the boot show is a great start to further disseminate our programs for shark conservations across the globe.”
