Why is shark protection or marine conservation important to you?

Species conservation, like climate protection, is a question of survival for all of us and especially for our children. I would like to contribute to them still being able to experience sharks underwater in 30 years' time.

Do you have any special skills, experiences or adventures?

I have been diving since 1995, with over 400 dives to my name. I have been able to admire sharks in their natural habitat.
I am a trained journalist and work as a media officer in Vienna. I like to put my communication skills at the service of shark conservation, currently as an author for the website.
Whether on the Daedalus Reef, with the Brothers or on the Maldives: Diving with shark encounters makes you feel like you're in a National Geographic film. We must protect this wonder!

And which is your favourite shark?
