Second Quarter Update 2019

Updated: Oct 15, 2020

It was full steam ahead in to the second quarter of 2019 for Shark Guardian with school visits and dive shows lined up. Plus as the charity continues to grow, it has been fantastic to see new speakers stepping in to the spotlight at events in Thailand and the UK.

Shark Guardian continues to develop a strong relationship with volunteer organization Projects Abroad in Ao Nang (Krabi, Thailand), delivering presentations and workshops to volunteers throughout the second quarter. Watch this space for future collaborations.

April 2019

Shark Guardian Director Brendon Sing took part in the OCTO Mission that took place 1-10 April 2019 at Khao Lak, Thailand. This is the journey of 20 young leaders coming from Thailand to learn more about marine conservation.

Bangkok was the location for another school tour at the end of April during earth week. Brendon fulfilled a busy schedule educating students at Shrewsbury, TSIS, Bangkok Prep and KPIS – a couple more thousand children of all ages are now shark crazy! The yearly swim event at KPIS was even bigger and better than ever!

May 2019

Shark Guardian were once again at the Malaysian Dive Expo show (MIDE) in Kuala Lumpur running the kids educational zone. The kids zone was busy throughout each of the days – once again the shark quiz was a popular favorite as was the photographs in the Megalodon Shark! Sharktopia coloring sheets were also enjoyed by children and even adults! Brendon gave 2 presentations about Shark Guardian activities worldwide and information regarding shark diving expeditions. After the dive show Brendon spent 2 days in schools, returning to the Alice Smith School and The international School at Park City. The educational shark and marine programs were very well received.

June 2019

To help celebrate World Oceans day on the 8th of June, Shark Guardian took part in an event staged by Eco Beasts in partnership with the Sang Foundation in Bangkok. A fabulous day saw many NGO’s and charities showcase their work and allow visitors to connect and engage with the many issues facing our oceans. Adults and children of all ages enjoyed art exhibitions, a range of activities, music and dance performances as well as workshops and presentations. Shark Guardian Ambassador Kerry Dyke led the keynote speech in the section on Protecting Marine Biodiversity and Student Ambassador Ashwina Kantapura ran workshops to inspire school students to get involved in anti shark fin restaurant and education campaigns.
