As sharks are apex predators and a lot of shark species are scavengers they control fish populations and make sure that only the healthiest fish survive by taking out the weak and ill fish.
For the oceans, no change is too small and here are some important things how you can contribute to a healthier ocean. At the beginning of 2013, Oceaware wants to give you an overview of contributions you can make at home or work to save sharks. (meer…)
Oceaware’s first project is finished. During three weeks on the Grand Cay (Bahamas) we dived, snorkeled and swam with sharks to learn more about shark-human interaction. For me it was the first encounter with wild sharks, and now I can say: my fascination for these animals is real. But also the perfect possibility to document the true nature of the beast. If I can interact safely with these animals without ever meeting one before, everyone can. (meer…)

For the first time I will work with wild sharks and discover their true nature with personal interaction without barriers. (meer…)
“The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.”
– Jacques Yves Cousteau
For some the sea remains a vast blue surface and a protein source, divers will tell you that surface is a gate to another world full of mysteries to explore.

The ocean and all its inhabitants form truly the last wilderness.
