Why is shark protection or marine conservation important to you?

They were here before us! 
We have no right to destroy their habitat and make profit from their ruthless extermination. 
People need to be informed about this injustice and the animals need to be protected.


Do you have any special skills, experience or expertise?

As an animal psychologist, I advocate for many animals, such as dogs and cats, cows, sharks, sea turtles and bats.

As a trained biomedical laboratory technician, I understand the natural relationships that form the basis of life on this planet.
Evolutionary biology is my hobby, being able to understand connections and explain them to others is important to me.

To make sure our son can dive safely, as he wants to become a shark conservationist, I also completed the Rescue Diver course and enjoy every minute underwater with my family.


And which is your favourite shark?

Stegostoma fasciatum (lat.)

What is man without the beasts? If all the beasts were gone, men would die from great loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beasts also happens to the man.
