In German!

Actually, not quite!

Juerg has a blog on the SOSF website where he's posted a short piece on his research in the SRMR. The link brings you to the website of MTW, the Swiss Television's scientific program, with a feature they ran in 2007. When you click on the pic with the diver and the Shark, you will get a pop-up window with the actual footage.

The gibberish are Swiss Standard German and Juerg's Swiss German. Or to be precise, his Zurich dialect, a local variation of High Alemannic (Wikipedia rocks!). If yer from anywhere North of Stuttgart, you will snicker at the first - and when it comes to the second, I wish you the very best of luck!

Anyway, it's a nice piece showcasing Juerg's work with huge and small Sharks and featuring some footage from Fiji. For me, the most remarkable scene is the video of our village ceremony in 2004 where we formally established the Marine Park.

Viel Spass beim Anschaun!
(No, this is the real deal!)
