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 fan. I think she knows more than us about sharks! She really enjoyed her day, as did her class mates and Amelie also enjoyed a day of making toilet roll sharks with us.



The event with SEA LIFE aquarium was an Evening with Friends for Sharks and included champagne and canapes by the shark tank, our lecture and a Q&A session with us afterwards. It was such a pleasure to be involved in this event and the guests had plenty of interesting questions and stories for us. We particularly enjoyed spending time at the aquarium and enjoyed their beautiful ocean life displays. Keep an eye on our blog for our next post, where we’ll be sharing more about the creatures on display.

The evening event was our last public lecture during this tour and we have now completed 80 shark conservation events and shared the plight of sharks with over 7000 people!


Onwards we go to Fiji to work on a bull shark conservation project with Projects Abroad UK. We have prepared a suite of nine different lectures for the guests at this project and look forward to sharing our work with the staff, local community and volunteers.
