Why is shark protection or marine conservation important to you?

I have been fascinated by sharks since my first dive. They are beautiful, intelligent animals and not the monsters they are often portrayed as. That's why I want to do something to protect them and preserve their habitat.


Do you have any special skills, experiences or adventures?

As a passionate warm water diver, I am always on the lookout for sharks during my travels. I've been lucky enough to see a few shark species, but I still have a long wish list :)


And which is your favourite shark?

Orectolobus maculatus (lat.)

Gemeiner oder Gefleckter Teppichhai (dt.)

Spotted Wobbegong (engl.)

No dive, no life!

I read it somewhere once and it's been my saying ever since.
