Together we can inspire ocean conservation and jump-start girls' interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) by providing them with critical resources and connecting them to strong role models in the field. Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, Mote Marine Laboratory, and over fifty female scientists from around the world are 'Making Waves' and empowering the next generation of ocean stewards. We invite you, your daughters, and granddaughters, to learn more about the Gills Club at our first annual benefit luncheon with fun kid's activities and silent auction.

“Membership and participation in the Gills Club empowered my daughter to transform a ‘C’ in sixth grade science on her first term report card into an ‘A-‘ for the second term. The Gills Club expanded her knowledge and passion for all things shark, introducing her to many other young female shark enthusiasts and scientists. Paige demonstrated the courage, curiosity, confidence and commitment to improve her grade,” -Bob Fiske

"Thank you for all that you do for The Gills Club and all the girls involved in the club!  Maggie has so many true role models now, it's such an encouragement to her! She believes she can really become a marine biologist, even though she is growing up in landlocked Colorado!" - Amy O'Connell
