Sharks have gotten themselves a nasty reputation from JAWS and the rare, although heavily publicised bites that happen along the coasts. Despite the amount of fear spread through out mainstream media and film, diving with sharks has grown to be an incredibly profitable industry. Just in the Bahamas, diving with sharks brings in over $113 million USD.
My journey to Scuba diving began on the Great Barrier Reef at the age of 13. Coming from the landlocked countries of Czech Republic and Switzerland never quelled my passion for the sea. As soon as I turned 18 I quickly received my Divemaster and Instructor and have been teaching ever since. In this nine year journey I witnessed many Coral Reefs suffering damage from anchors, rubbish, bleaching and algal overgrowth. This spurred me onto raising awareness about the health of our oceans and our dependence on them. Now I use my knowledge about the underwater world, love for conservation and excitement of meeting new people to promote projects.
