Marie Chau, PADI Assistant Instructor at Atlantis International, Bali has been busy over the past few months supporting Project AWARE's Give Sharks A Fighting Chance petition. She has managed to collect over four hundred signatures from divers, customers and locals who enter the shop in Sanur, Bali.

As well as showing support for shark conservation Atlantis also organise monthly Project AWARE cleanup activities for all their staff.

On Thursday 19th May 2011, we took our shark petition to the streets of Bristol City Centre. We had so much fun!
