SILENCE OF THE SHARKS - December 2015

Did you know? Sharks don't feed on humans. Humans feed on sharks. The official SILENCE OF THE SHARKS video invites you to watch, share and join the campaign to save lives and make a difference!

THE VOICE OF DIVING INSTRUCTORS

Diving instructor?
Care about the ocean?
Your destiny calls!
Here’s your opportunity to make a difference.

Organizing 500 divers in one dive site is a logistic challenge by all means, but fortunately, we have successfully led such a dive as the opening protest of this campaign and our experience only ensures this dive will be a safe, fascinating and enjoyable one. Just as during the dive held in 2015, each diving instructor will be leading a group of 10 divers throughout an organized, well-planned ahead setup. However, since the experience and safety of many divers depends on our team of instructors, we seek for only the most trained and responsible leaders for this job. Are you up for the challenge?

THE VOICE OF CHILDREN 

Children of the world are joining this fascinating and important journey of saving the sharks by drawing the protest banners held underwater during the dive. For this purpose, a competition is held online, inviting all children in all countries and all ages to create their own protest banner and to share it on a dedicated platform established on the SILENCE OF THE SHARKS website. The winning banners will be printed on waterproof ads and will be carried underwater by the protesting divers. 

  The best drawing of them all will be awarding its young creator and one of his parents with an invitation (flights and accommodation) to participate in the event Sponsor by DAN Europe.

Since I was born I have been in very close relation with water. Salt water helped me snorkel before I could swim. My parents often tell funny stories about me floating on the surface for hours until my back got burned again and again.
Later I started scuba diving in 1995 in Mediterranean. Although I had an idea what a beauty is down there from snorkeling times, scuba diving opened my eyes even more. I will never forget the moment when the first breath from scuba allowed me to stay under surface longer.
First contact with waters of Red Sea made me completely addicted to exploring and observing underwater environment. Attempts to save memories pushed me forward and I bought an underwater camera in 2003. Since then the passion has changed from diving and exploring to searching and capturing unique moments. Wide angle has become my favourite photography discipline. Sharks are wonderful creatures I love to interact with. I love to see their eyes, feel the roughness of their skin and watch the elegance they cruise the waters with. The ocean would be such a depleted space without them.
