World Tour for Sharks – The End!

So, this is it. We made it to the finish line and our World Tour for Sharks is officially over.

Complete. Done.

How is it possible that we even made it to this point? Mostly in one piece I would like to add; with just two hospital visits, two broken laptops, two broken cameras, four back injury […]

Projects Abroad: Community Action Day Fun!

The staff and volunteers at Projects Abroad undertake valuable community-based conservation work and we have really enjoyed our time participating in this aspect of the Fiji project.

Melbourne Sharks

We have really enjoyed our two weeks in Melbourne, Australia and had two fantastic events; one with Melbourne’s SEA LIFE aquarium and one at Kunyung School in Mount Eliza. The school event was a particularly special one for us, as it had been organised by my niece Amelie Hodgson and she is a HUGE shark […]

Auckland Week Two: Farewell New Zealand

Our second week in Auckland focused on our school events and we enjoyed spending time with the students of Somerville, Silverdale and Bailey Road schools.

Bay of Plenty of Difficulties.

After feeling rejuvenated by our afternoon in the Spa, Kathryn and I enjoyed a few days exploring local geothermal areas and catching up with office work before our final Rotorua event with Forest and Bird. We always enjoy our F&B events and with the friendliness we’d encountered thus far in Rotorua we had high expectations […]

Freezing Fundraising Swim on New Year’s Day

“It was a cold and windy winter’s day!”

Every story needs a dramatic start and that particular cliché seems appropriate when on New Year’s Day 2015 Friends for Sharks stepped out to make good on the promise of the previous 2 months of fundraising. At midday Nicholas was due to swim for as long/far as possible […]

Freezing Swim for Sharks

So what are you up to Nicholas?

 

I ‘m doing a sponsored swim for sharks but it’s not your usual type of swim…

 

Okay. So why is your swim any different to others?

 

I’ll be swimming in shorts, a rash vest and diving hood

 

Why is that unusual?

 

I will be swimming on New Year’s day……in Padstow Harbour, England.

 

Oh. I […]
