A voluntary program that aims to bolster a shrinking shark population by preventing people from showing off dead sharks at marinas is growing globally, organizers say.

Fewer than two years after its creation, SharkFreeMarinas.com lists more than 110 marinas and businesses from eight countries — including 78 in the United States — as shark-free or shark-friendly.

The initiative is organized by the Humane Society of the United States, the animal-welfare grantor Pegasus Foundation and the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation.
