Shark apathy & media resistance

Today was a very mixed day of emotions for me. As a cuddly and very cute shark, I have always assumed that everyone just automatically loves me but I found out today that some people are not too keen on myself and Finley.

Shark apathy & media resistance

Katy and Darren have been busy organising their extraordinary event, Fin4finning to raise awareness of the nastiness of shark finning. This morning Katy got a phone call from one of the participants in tomorrows swim who was finding it very difficult to persuade his family, friends and colleagues to sponsor him for a shark charity.  How annoying is that? I thought everyone would love me! It's a good job that Sub-Mission Dive Club and Bans and some other great dive centre's are keen to help me and my friends.

This issue was made even more real when I spent the afternoon helping Katy to phone around and get media coverage for tomorrows swim. I was astounded that she has had such a hard time trying to get the local radio and papers to cover a shark event! Shocker! Not a good day today, but I'm glad that I've got friends like Katy & Darren.
