Why is shark protection or marine conservation important to you?

I am committed to protecting our oceans because I am aware of how sensitive the marine ecosystem is - and how worthy of protection.

Sharks, as an indispensable part of this ecosystem, but with a bad reputation and a poor lobby, depend on us to contribute to a better understanding of their role through information and education, thus ensuring them a better chance and protection.

Do you have any special skills, experience or expertise?

  • I have been interested in sharks since I was 11 years old. Since then, I have continuously broadened and deepened my knowledge about these fascinating creatures.
  • In 2015, I made my first swap certificate and since then I have been lucky enough to experience many great encounters with different sea creatures.
  • I have been active with Sharkproject since 2017 and am proud to be able to contribute to the protection of the oceans and sharks in this way.


And which is your favourite shark?

Ginglymostoma cirratum (lat.)

Atlantischer Ammenhai (dt.)

Realism does not help with dreaming.
