Dive in, let's meet the sharks in this story-telling, shark smart quiz and creative drawing experience! Plus I will give you a copy of my book on sharks for free!
First I'll share an amazing true story about an extraordinary shark named Maxine that I met while photographing sharks in an aquarium. Our meeting set a course of events in motion that changed both of our lives: Maxine was the catalyst that set me free from the rat race of the corporate world I was in to follow my dreams; and I satellite tagged Maxine and set her free after she had spent 9 years in captivity in an aquarium.
Supported by compelling visuals, I'll share the journey we both followed to our freedom; I'll tell you why I fell in love with sharks, what role they play in the marine ecosystems, what threats they face, and why I need you to join me and become a Shark Warrior and help me to save them!
I'll also share stories about my travels to photograph different species of sharks around the world, how I love freediving with sharks, and I'll let you in on secrets behind some of my crazy shark awareness campaigns.
After a quick quiz to make sure you've become Shark Smart, we'll practice our creative skills and draw a picture of Maxine and her fishy friends. And as a gift to you from Maxine and me, I'll give you a copy of a book I wrote called 'SHARKS', an awesome educational resource for the whole family!
