SHARK GUARDIAN

Shark GuardianBRIEF HISTORY

By Brendon Sing: Shark Guardian started for me when I became fascinated with sharks when I was about 10 years old looking at them through thick aquarium glass. At the age of 17 I became a scuba diver and all I wanted to do was dive with sharks. I followed that passion into my studies after high school and joined many research shark projects around the coast of South Africa. Shortly afterwards I became a Scuba Diving Instructor and was leading divers on exciting shark diving encounters and safaris. I turned my attention away from research and strongly towards shark educational conservation in 2001.

By 2008 I was presenting shark seminars to the general public, dive centers, resorts and other organizations. Shark Guardian got its name in 2009 when I was starting to get invitations to present to school students. In 2013 my wife Liz and I dedicated ourselves full time to Shark Guardian and its projects. Today Shark Guardian is an official UK registered charity for shark and marine conservation worldwide.

SHARK GUARDIAN PROJECT ACHIEVEMENTS

Since 2009 Shark Guardian educational projects have been presented in South Africa, UK, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Brunei, Hong Kong and East Timor. We have visited over 30 schools internationally presenting educational shark conservation projects and seminars to over 12,000 people. In 2011 Shark Guardian presented to a government audience attending the Brunei National Environmental Conference. Another revisit to Brunei in 2013 and a few weeks later Brunei enforced a nationwide complete shark product ban.
