Sharkwater

Thursday, April 14, 2011

Ive heard of this movie before  but never watched it until last week.  But Sharkwater is movie everyone should watch. It shows sharks as you probably never seen them before. It doesnt picture them as killing machines - beast waiting in deep waters ready to kill a man as soon as it occurs in its territory.
Its a movie about the balance of life on earth.
Driven by love and passion toward these mysterious animals the filmmaker Rob Stewart fights “historical stereotypes and media depictions of sharks as bloodthirsty, man-eating monsters and reveals the reality of sharks as pillars in the evolution of the seas”.
The movie exposes  the exploitation and corruption surrounding the world's shark populations in the marine reserves of Cocos Island, Costa Rica and the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador. Its shows world of these fascinating predators, it shows how fragile this World is, how people blindly hunt these animals-for fear and mostly for profit. Without protection the everyday diminishing population of sharks can easily be wiped out within few years.
I have seen sharks when diving in Thailand and  Bali and i love these animals. I didnt fear them but felt such a respect . And it breaks my heart to know there is  over a million sharks killed every year.
Even though longline fishing and and shark finning is banned now on most of the places in the World its still happening with only few people noticing.  How much suffering do we have to cause before we realize its pointless.....
