The Shark Warrior

If you have not already done so, please sign up to iDiveSharks.

It's the place to be, but you also need to do so in order to read this.
It is the I think moving story of how a warrior discovered SCUBA, became a world renown underwater cinematographer and now runs the first iPhone app and the first social network dedicated to Shark divers.

Mark's awareness of the plight of Sharks has been a gradual one.
Now, like so many of us old timers, he has joined the increasing ranks of the grassroots marine conservation movement. In a way, it's the inevitable consequence of having been there for such a long time, and of having witnessed the global decline first hand - and still, it never ceases to amaze me how people from such diverse walks of life and with such different life histories continue to converge and find themselves united around this common cause.

As Mark says
Onwards and upwards.
The ride hasn't finished and I definitely don't wish to get off just yet.
Its all about to get very interesting.

Indeed it will - and in a good way!
Keep watching this space!

Thanks mate, my blushing is giving the deep red in your logo a run for its money! That beer will be sweet when we eventually get around to it.

Be safe.
