Shark Heroes

We are fascinated by them but also fearful of them: sharks. Not many people know that we need them. Sharks are indispensable for the existence of the oceans and their superpowers keep to amaze us. Do you know why sharks like to swim to a cleaning station? Or that they roamed the seas long before the Dinosaurs appeared on our planet? 

Sophie has had a passion for sharks since she met one of her Shark Heroes in person. She swam in multiple places with sharks and discovered that they are not dangerous but in danger, and that they are in desperate need of our help. In Shark Heroes, a compelling combination of fiction and non fiction, she shows with help of bizarre shark facts and heroic ocean advocates - captains, marine biologists, deep sea divers and modern mermaids - that sharks are the true heroes of the oceans. But most of all she wants to help these magnificent animals and all life forms in the oceans. 

The ten Shark Heroes are: Peter Hammarstedt, Sylvia Earle, Riley Elliott, Ocean Ramsey, Cristina Zenato, Vincent Mock, Valerie Taylor, Gary Stokes, Rob Stewart and Ginevra Boldrocchi. You can learn more about them through the following links.
