Empowering Shark Advocacy Among Youth in Australia
Alexa Ward, Communications & Community Relations Specialist
If you knew her growing up, Charlee Shea probably seemed an unlikely shark advocate. She moved to South West Rocks on the mid north coast of New South Wales, Australia at age 12, but wasn’t exactly the “coastal” type. In fact, she was terrified of the ocean. Susceptible, like so many of us are, to the exaggerated myths of sharks as man-eating predators, Charlee was so mortified that she refused to even enter ocean waters.
