Calling all divers! We're teaching a Shark Conservation Specialty course AT COST to help spread awareness of the threats these beautiful creatures face. I will give a two hour presentation on sharks: their unique features, the threats they face, the impact of a decline in numbers and how we can HELP. We will then go on two dives to look at sharks and the threats in this area.
