Still the Best!

When I first watched this video, I was moved to tears.
Since that time many years ago, there has been a veritable deluge of productions highlighting the magical underwater life of Cocos and the plight of Sharks - and yet, this remains the unequaled masterpiece.
Avi is one of the owners of the Undersea Hunter franchise and he has spent countless hours with his venerable Draeger waiting for the perfect moment - and it shows, as does the loving and meticulous editing by Nicola Ghersinich. These are the earlier days of the legendary Mario Arroyo, when we were only killing 15 million Sharks and when the schools of Hammerheads were already depleted but still incredibly impressive.
Much of it gone now, likely forever.

Be amazed and deeply moved.
