The Malaysia International Dive Expo (MIDE) this July was a fantastic opportunity to meet AWARE supporters and thank them in person for their efforts to protect the ocean. Scuba Junkie shark expert Rohan Perkins presented at MIDE to help raise awareness for sharks. Rohan received Project AWARE funding through the Ocean Action Project in 2012 so I made a special trip to visit the Scuba Junkie team and check out their conservation programs.
As we go into a more rainy period of the year, we would like to take this opportunity to spend more time with everyone around us. To try and educate them in the effects of shark finning and also to put a light what is really happening around us.
Join us for this presenation on our boat. We will try to do the dives on those places we most often see the sharks. Then as we head back home, we will talk through todays sightings and the effects we humans have on them.
