  • Great White Shark Pictures
    For the last decade Chris Fallows has worked at the most well known Great White Shark sites in South Africa. Initially at Dyer Island & Struis Baai for four and a half years and since then at Seal island, False Bay. Throughout this period his interest has been twofold, firstly an incredible passion for these magnificent predators that has concentrated his efforts into trying to conserve and protect these poorly understood animals. The second reason being a continual quest to capture through still photographs the unique behaviour that keeps people fascinated by the worlds most revered shark.

  • Shark Research Institute
    The Shark Research Institute is a non-profit, international scientific organization dedicated to the conservation of sharks and research on sharks. The challenges facing this critical apex predator are many, and seemingly overwhelming. More than 100 million are slaughtered every year for their fins. Climate change is dramatically disrupting the oceanic ecosystem and food chain. And mankind's attitudes are indifferent at best; savage at worst. We believe science—rigorous, peer-reviewed, professional—can inform and guide governing bodies and society at large to conservation policies that ensure the sustainability of all shark species. Founded in 1991 at Princeton, New Jersey, USA, SRI has field offices in Florida, Pennsylvania and Texas, as well as Australia, Canada, Ecuador, Honduras, India, Mexico, Mozambique, Seychelles, South Africa and the United Kingdom.

We teach all over the world: Azores, Bahamas (Grand Cay, Bimini, Eleuthera, "Tigerbeach"), Colombia (Malpelo), Costa Rica (Cocos), Ecuador (Galapagos), Egypt, Fiji, Mexico (Playa del Carmen, Guadalupe, Socorro), Palau, South Africa (Protea Banks, Alival Shoals), Tahiti, and more.

  • Taking Action To Save Sharks | Shark Allies
    We are dedicated to the protection and conservation of sharks and rays. Our focus is on taking action, on raising awareness and guiding initiatives that reduce the destructive overfishing of sharks on a global scale. Sharks are the guardians of the ocean. And they need our help. They take care of a system that is so vital to our quality of life and, ultimately, to our survival. Humanity has not been good to sharks, but we can change that now. We can stop the destruction, reverse the damage, take a stand for what is right, and fight against what hurts us all. We must focus on action, and change the way we treat sharks and the ocean. The outcome is up to all of us. Venice, California
