EVENT: Sharks, Camera, Action!
Sharks, Camera, Action! is a forum and a mini film festival, focused on sharks and their relatives, which aims to encourage, inspire, and educate the general public about the important role that these animals play in our oceans. Our goal is to facilitate communication about sharks and their relatives by screening marine research and conservation films, from around the world.
Globally sharks are being overfished at levels never before seen in human history, and lack of proper management is pushing many species to the brink of extinction. Substantial attention is now focused on identifying the most at risk species and implementing effective conservation and management plans. Join us to hear from researchers and conservationists from around the world to learn about why we should be afraid for sharks not of sharks.
