|the call of the shark
BAJA PENINSULA - MEXICO - 2012/13
The idea is to buy and release live-hooked sharks from fishermen in the Baja Peninsula. Besides freeing potentially dead sharks, the main purpose of this project is to show the fishermen the economic benefits of a live shark. Ecotourism provides higher and less risky income for the fishermen. Not only with direct pay from customers but from indirect income spent by explorers in the local towns. We believe this project will bring the necessary attention and customer flow to the selected towns in the Baja Peninsula while preparing the fishermen to receive shark divers.

phase 2 of call of the shark - implementing ecotourism
During April the Pelagic Life crew spend an entire week in the Baja Peninsula training the local fishermen how to make a shark diving operation. Several chumming experiments will be performed and scouting for the best locations will be critical. We appreciate your continued support and your help will go directly towards funding this experimental operation.
