Sharkwater - the Documentary
"We’re just a conceited naked ape, but in our minds we’re some ‘divine legend’ and we see ourselves as some sort of god, seeing we can decide what will live and what will die, what will be saved and what will be destroyed, but honestly we’re just a bunch of primates out of control."
Paul Watson, Sharkwater
Just after coffee, i found myself signing one more petition against 'shark fin soup'. And then one more. So i said to myself "it's about time to talk some more about those beautiful and misunderstood water creatures". There was already an entry here at Animal Voice where the topic of shark finning had been covered some time ago, there you can still find some good information and useful links (some of the petitions are long closed but when you are interested in signing petitions - on all kind of topics - remember it's as easy as typing on your Google search "shark finning petitions", or "sharks petitions" or anything along that line, where there's a will there's a way so i'm sure the person that is truly interested in helping out will find a way, and remember you can always ask me any info or question and i'll try to be as helpful as i can). To get back to that first entry on shark finning just click this link "Stop Shark Finning" .
What i'd like to introduce you to this time is this great documentary from filmmaker Rob Stewart - SHARKWATER:
"In an effort to protect sharks, Stewart teams up with renegade conservationist Paul Watson of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. Their unbelievable adventure together starts with a battle between the Sea Shepherd and shark poachers in Guatemala, resulting in pirate boat rammings, gunboat chases, mafia espionage, corrupt court systems and attempted murder charges, forcing them to flee for their lives.
Through it all, Stewart discovers these magnificent creatures have gone from predator to prey, and how despite surviving the earth's history of mass extinctions, they could easily be wiped out within a few years due to human greed." (from SHARKWATER)
