Shark Guardian 6 month review – what a busy 2017 so far!

Updated: Oct 16, 2020


Time to review the first six months of 2017. Dive Centre education and dive/snorkel courses, school presentations in Thailand, dive shows in Thailand and Singapore and South African schools and diving. 2017 has certainly started busy for Shark Guardian UK Charity! More than 10,000 people have seen Shark Guardian in action so far this year – the second half will continue to be action packed as Shark Guardian strive to educate as many people as possible about sharks and conservation.

Shark education workshop on Koh Lanta


Shark Guardian spent time on Koh Lanta on the west coast of Thailand. Shark Guardian dive centers there held small workshops for staff to get everyone up to speed with the Shark Guardian flip chart. This is a fabulous educational tool to spread shark education and encourage citizen science research around the world. More use of the flip chart in January as well as over the coming high season in Khao Lak, educated guests as well as staff.

Shark education Phuket Schools


Shark Guardian enjoyed returning to the British International School in Phuket, Thailand. Since the visit, older students have worked to educate others as well as raising money for the Shark Guardian charity. In addition to visiting International Schools, Shark Guardian is enjoying visiting local schools in Thailand. Kings School R35 near Khao Lak in the Phang Nga province of Thailand enjoyed a visit by Directors Liz and Brendon in February.
