Why is shark protection or marine conservation important to you?

The protection of sharks is inherently linked to the protection of the oceans. We need a healthy marine ecosystem, otherwise the basis of all our lives is threatened. Sharks play a very special role in this. As a kind of " health police of the ocean" they are indispensable for a stable productive marine ecosystem.

Do you have any special skills, experiences or expertise?

  • Diver since 1983 with various shark encounters. (among others Cuba, Maldives, Egypt, Indonesia, Bahamas and Kenya)
  • Two bio-diving seminars conducted by the Institute of Marine Biology (IFMB) in the Baltic Sea under the direction of Dr. Claus Valentin

And which is your favourite shark?

Galeocerdo cuvier (lat.)

Tiger Shark (engl.)

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
