Great White Calendar!

This is Granma - actually, one of our most relaxed and mellow Bull Shark ladies.

As so often, Underwater Thrills have beat me to the punch!
Damn!

Still, it is with great personal pleasure that I can report that at this year's book fair in Frankfurt, our good and faithful friend Klaus has launched an exceptional calendar featuring his work with South Africa's Great Whites. Klaus has spent months in that region and his (analogue!) pictures of breaching GW are widely considered to be among the best in the industry.

You may also want to check out this gallery documenting Juerg's research within Shark Reef Marine Reserve.

Aside from being an exceptional underwater photographer, Klaus is also a passionate Shark conservationist and a benefactor who regularly donates his pictures to museums, scientists and pro-Shark publications. The proceeds from the sale of this calender will allow him to continue investing his money and his time into one of his principal goals, to document all of the Sharks on the IUCN Red List.
It's a herculean task and knowing the man, a labor of love.

As always, our very best wishes go out to him.
Please show your solidarity and order you calender here - it is for the very best of causes!
Thank you
