Why is shark protection or marine conservation important to you?

I love the sea. Sharks ensure the balance in the sea. And without sharks, there is no functioning marine ecosystem. They are my policemen of the seas, that's why I protect sharks.


Do you have any special skills, experiences or adventures?

My first dive as OWD with a group of adult bull sharks at 10 metres and swimming next to a 4-metre whale shark was pure bliss underwater.
+ 200 dives (SSI OWD, Padi AOWD, Nitrox)
Diving and educational trips in Indonesia, Africa, Thailand, Micronesia, Maldives, Mauritius, Palau, Hawaii, Cuba, Malaysia/Borneo, Sri Lanka...


And which is your favourite shark?

Rhincodon typus (lat.)

Walhai (dt.)

Whale shark (engl.)

The sea is a poem without words.
