Diving on the east coast of Australia is incredible; warm tropical seas or cool temperate waters, both support an amazing array of marine life. Great schools of fish swarm in the dappled sunlight with perhaps a passing turtle or ray in the background. But at a handful of dive sites you see none of this; your eyes are firmly fixed on the circling grey nurse sharks.
Shark Guardian, a nonprofit organization founded by Brendon Sing, is standing up for shark protection and inspiring the masses to put their shark passion to action. Sing takes the Shark Guardian presentation international, traveling and presenting to massive audiences about the importance of shark species, why they’re in trouble and what we can do about it.
“We make it clear that sharks are vitally important for the health and ecological balance of our oceans. We must save our sharks and protect our oceans, to save ourselves,” said Sing.
We are emptying the ocean of sharks. Thankfully, divers are some of sharks’ closest and most influential allies. Together, we are creating a powerful, collective voice to lead global grassroots change. You’ve helped us secure a stronger EU finning ban and bring about safeguards for highly traded shark and ray species under CITES.
