now-famous, flying great white sharks of Seal Island in False Bay, South
Africa, are extremely high profile animals, yet very little is being done
to conserve these super predators.
World-renowned photographer and naturalist Chris Fallows, his wife
Monique, and business partner Rob Lawrence work an average of 150 days per
year at Seal Island observing these amazing sharks as they hunt using
spectacular breaching techniques. Numerous attempts to have the area
declared a nature conservancy have failed, threatening the delicate
balance that has existed for eons.
Through imagery, newsletters, and talks, Chris & Monique now make
every effort possible to showcase this unique area. They hope their work
will inspire further efforts to conserve this very special enclave.
