- My Summary
Hi, I started diving about 6 years ago and it has been a wonderful experience, quite spiritual at times. I recently started my rescue diver course. Also, after watching the splendid movie Shark Water, I was surprised by two aspects : 1)how little the general public, including myself, knows about the essential role that is played by sharks in regard to the maintenance of a healthy global ecosystem, 2) how beautiful they really are.
After watching Shark Water, I changed my steadfast no to shark diving to a definite what are we waiting for? Let's go. Now, I view sharks with such respect and awe. I wish to help more people to become aware of the importance of safeguarding the various species of sharks.
