“Bula!” (That’s Fijian for “Yo, wassup!“) Following a successful premier this past Monday in the Fiji capital of Suva, I’m proud to bring you the new short documentary, Shark Hope. Produced by the Coral Reef Alliance and The Pew Environment Group’s Global Shark Conservation Campaign, the film is an entirely Fijian effort that details the plight of sharks in Fiji, focuses on the importance of sharks to Fiji’s culture, economy and marine environment, and efforts to create a Fiji National Shark Sanctuary. The film stars local Fijian celebrity Ratu Manoa Rasigatale and global celebrity and DSN pal Angelo Villagomez as “Irish-Chamorro shark expert with satellite tagging collar around his neck”.
Vinaka vakalevu! (Thank you very much!)
