Why is shark protection or marine conservation important to you?

Sharks are unrecognized animals without a lobby. We give them a voice and fight for their protection. Without them, we humans would not survive either. They contribute significantly to the balance in the marine ecosystem. It concerns ALL people!


Do you have any special skills, experiences or adventures?

  • Diving with sharks since 1999.
  • Active with SHARKPROJECT since 2006 and founding member of the Swiss association.
