The clock’s ticking for vanishing shark species and now is the time to join the race to protect them. It's inspiring to catch up with Finathon Champion and PADI Course Director Katy Bloor. Katy held a super successful Finathon at Sub-Mission Dive Centre, UK where over 70 divers put on their fins in protest against shark finning and swam 100 kilometers to raise funds for Project AWARE’s shark campaign.
Ten years ago, Matt Fieschi was working in the Maldives as a tourism entertainer – playing volleyball, organizing tournaments on the beach, leading snorkelling tours and hosting comic shows. He didn’t think his idyllic island life could get any better… That is, until he learned to scuba dive! After earning his beginner’s open water certification, Matt quickly advanced through training and eventually became a dive instructor.
