Why is shark protection or marine conservation important to you?
The oceans make up about 70 % of our planet. They are a habitat, a source of food and a producer of oxygen. So when we protect the oceans, we are not only protecting one of the most beautiful and fascinating things on our planet, but also our own existence and future.
Do you have any special skills, experiences or adventures?
- Sharks are incredibly fascinating creatures that unfortunately still have a bad image among many people. In order to protect sharks and the oceans sustainably, this attitude, among others, has to change fundamentally.
- I love talking to people about the oceans, their inhabitants and the underwater world, or discovering them together while diving.
- I did my Divemaster training in Indonesia when I was 18. I love being able to show other people the beautiful underwater world and hope to have many more shark encounters.
And which is your favourite shark?
Rhincodon typus (lat.)
Whale shark (engl.)
We need to respect the oceans and take care of them as if our lives depended on it. Because they do.
