Founded by scientists who stumbled into the fashion world, Waterlust makes vibrant, environmentally responsible apparel that visually represents various marine and freshwater science conservation topics, empowering you to use what you wear as a fun and functional science communication tool. For each design, Waterlust donates 10% of profits to leading research and education organizations and use their expert knowledge to guide behavioral change recommendations.
We work with Waterlust through their Positive Impact Partnership program. That is, if you swim over to their website using the links found on this page and make a purchase, Divine Depth will receive a commission!
This is an extra special partnership because we have a giving program too!
Have fun exploring their amazing advocate apparel!!
Whale Shark Collection
10 % of profits from this collection are donated to the Marine Megafauna Foundation.
Whale sharks are the largest shark and therefore largest fish in the sea! They can be as long as a school bus and can weigh up to 50,000 pounds! They are one of three sharks that are filter feeders, which means they feed on plankton and must travel large distances to find enough food to sustain their huge size, and to reproduce.
Marine megafauna, or ocean giants, such as the whale shark, play a critical role in the health of our oceans’ vast ecosystems, and thus the survival of all marine life. The stakes have never been higher for these ocean giants, which is why the Marine Megafauna Foundation is on a mission to save them using pioneering research, education, and sustainable conservation solutions.
Tiger Shark Collection
10% of profits from this collection are donated to the Shark Research and Conservation Program (SRC) at the University of Miami.
The tiger shark gets its name from the dark vertical bars that cover the side of its body. The bars are more noticeable in juveniles and fade slightly as an individual reaches adulthood. Unlike whales sharks, tiger sharks are aggressive predators and are famous for eating just about anything they can find or capture, such as fish and invertebrates, seabird, sea turtles, rays and marine mammals.
Worldwide, there are few engaging science education opportunities to inspire youth to adopt conservation attitudes and behaviours. There is also a lack of knowledge and awareness about marine ecology and conservation in relation to shark species. The SRC try to meet these challenges through community outreach, virtual research experiences and actually take school-children on research boats to survey, sample, tag and study sharks!
