Shark Week 2022

Save lives this July — in more ways than one!

Tune into Shark Week, beginning July 24, 2022 at 8p, or stream on discovery+, and join us in supporting: 

  • Oceana: The largest international advocacy organization dedicated solely to ocean conservation. Each year, the fins from as many as 73 million sharks end up in the global find trade, which is why Oceana is campaigning to ban the buying and selling of shark fins in the United States. Through its partnership with Shark Week, Oceana is reminding the public that humans need healthy oceans and healthy oceans need sharks. Donate to Oceana and support its campaign to end the U.S. shark fin trade by signing their petition here.
  • Beneath the Waves: A non-profit organization dedicated to protecting our oceans through state-of-the-art science and technology. With initiatives aimed at conserving biodiversity and protecting highly migratory species like sharks, Beneath the Waves strives to promote ocean health and catalyze ocean policy.
  • American Red Cross: A non-profit organization committed to providing life-saving services to all on behalf of generous donors and volunteers. This month, Discovery and the American Red Cross want to thank you for preventing a summer shortage. When donors give blood, platelets, or plasma at a Red Cross blood drive between Thursday, July 21 and Sunday, July 24, they will be automatically entered for a chance to win $5K worth of Shark Week merchandise and receive an exclusive Shark Week t-shirt. 
Visit to give blood today or select the organization(s) you would like to contribute to and donate below (U.S. Only).
For more information, visit and download one (or more!) of the fin-tastic Zoom backgrounds above.
Donation information is collected and processed by Pledge in accordance with its Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. All donations and associated personal information will be processed by Pledge and shared with Discovery.
