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.

Despite this the Australian government continues to refrain from condemning with actions this criminal activity.

"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". Sylvia Earle

Protector de los océanos!

Deja atrás los prejuicios cinematográficos y acércate a conocer al gran incomprendido, el tiburón blanco. De la mano de Mauricio, científico mexicano que pasa la mitad del año entre tiburones, conocerás el comportamiento, hábitat, alimentación y una serie de detalles sorprendentes sobre un animal que cuenta con un "diseño" sumamente eficaz. También conocerás una inhóspita porción de México que tal vez no sabías que existía: la Isla Guadalupe.

Sumérgete.
