Bull Shark Diver Community - for shark sightings and protection

We are trying to build a community online and offline for the protection of the amazing Bull Sharks. Our aim is to gather as many divers possible, who had or plannig to have a personal experience with the sharks. These divers are the true ambassadors of Bull Sharks in the Playa del Carmen region. Bull sharks are still arriving to this area every year for the winter months, but less and less in numbers. In 2012 November, we saw big groups of them in our non baited dives, but after reports of extensive shark fishing from the town of Puerto Morelos, the encounters became more rare, and we only see one or two sharks on our dives, if seing any. We are trying to build, using online social networks (mainly Facebook) an active comunity which can share the sightings, making sure, the next generation of responsible divers still can enjoy these amazing sharks. Also using the same network, we will try to learn about allk the activities, which are endangering the bull sharks of Playa del Carmen.

Nice blog! This is a good movement to protect not only humans but so do sharks to keep them out from endangered list of species.

I am very much interested to join on every event regarding the protection of bullsharks. I have been scuba diving for the last 2 years and I'm willing to help on the cause. I hope I can get there before the best essays contest event came. I recently enrolled in a diving event and would probably come to meet the leaders of this community.

They are back! Just in another spot than usual, which might give them some protection until the fishermen figure out where to look.

Hopefully the Mexican government will do something finally to protect these amazing animal.

So sad. I was diving in Tulum a couple of weeks ago and planned on going to playa, couldnt do it because thre were not enough bull sharks to do the dive... I was lucy enough to see one at one of the reefs during my Fish Id dive in Tulum... I hope we get to do something to stop the fishing in Puerto Morelos.
