Today Project AWARE Foundation and the PADI family mourn the loss of one of the ocean's greatest shark conservationists and underwater filmographers, Mr Ron Taylor.

For more than 40 years, Australian "Shark Man' Ron Taylor and his wife Valerie dedicated their lifes to conserving and filming sharks. Their marine conservation work and groundbreaking marine documentaries forced many to view sharks with a different perspective; one of appreciation, value and respect. 

Sadly Ron passed away yesterday after a two year battle with myeloid leukemia.
