Benefits raised will help save sharks by exposing the greatest scandal the oceans have ever seen. Once people know what’s really going on out there – everything will change… Fellow yogi activist Brock Cahill and filmmaker Rob Stewart are working on a follow-up documentary to the beautiful and acclaimed Sharkwater, released in 2007. In this new documentary, Sharkwater: Extinction, will shows a different perspective of sharks than the monsters they are usually portrayed to be in the media. The hope is by changing people’s perceptions of sharks, we will care enough to help save them, and in turn, save our environment through balanced ecosystems. While sharks are top predators, they have fallen prey to humans – shark populations have decreased by 90% in the past 30 years; 150 million sharks are killed every year and are ending up in all kinds of products we use without our knowledge, including mislabeled fish for consumption, pet food, and cosmetics.
