Award-winning director Rob Stewart receives Senate 150 medal. Filmmaker Rob Stewart, who is credited with saving over one-third of the world’s sharks and whose movies Revolution (2013) and Sharkwater (2007) won multiple awards, was posthumously awarded a Senate 150 Anniversary medal Wednesday morning (Nov. 29) by Senator Michael McDonald, whose proposed Bill S-238 gives hope that Canada will be one of the first countries to support a national shark fin ban.

Revillagigedo Archipelago

"Mexico's newly expanded marine protected area around the Revillagigedo Archipelago fills me with hope! It's a huge step towards safeguarding a vital and magical ecosystem in the Mexican Pacific. Once you see the images of the mantas and hammerheads dancing around rock pinnacles, you get it. Worth protecting! My deepest gratitude to everyone who made it happen".

Apex Predator being hunt

We tend to think of great whites as being on the top of the food chain. But recent events coming from the beaches of South Africa show that there is one marine creature that even great whites might want to avoid.
