Bite-Back was launched in 2004 by Graham Buckingham.
As a new diver Graham noticed a terrifying trend. Despite diving around the world, underwater shark encounters were incredibly rare. Where had all the sharks gone?

Concerned that he was more likely to see a shark on a menu than underwater, Graham decided to challenge a local restaurant for serving shark fin soup. After several conversations the London restaurant decided to change its menu. The concept for Bite-Back was born.
Since then thousands of people have used the charity’s ethos and materials to successfully challenge shops and restaurants in their own neighbourhoods.
Together we are Team Bite-Back.
"I’m a sucker for sharks so it’s easy for me to get behind Bite-Back’s campaigns. Best of all they’re getting real, measurable results.”
