Why is shark protection or marine conservation important to you?

I grew up watching the films of Hans Haas and Jaques Cousteau. Although I don't dive and swim poorly, sharks and the oceans have always fascinated me. A child's scribble drawing of mine already shows a shark in our neighbour's aquarium.

Do you have any special skills, experiences or adventures?

  • I don't have any special skills for shark conservation!
    My general qualities include calmness
    Perseverance - never give up, there is a solution for everything!

And which is your favourite shark?

Somniosus microcephalus (lat.)

Grönlandhai/Eishai (dt.)

Greenland shark (engl.)

Water and air, the two essential elements for all life, are global dustbins.
