Artist StatementI wanted to create a world where the sharks have actually taken on human characteristics and have come to land to take revenge for being finned and stand their ground. I believe education about shark finning is important through art and I want to bring the topic into the light by creating these large shark figures that will eventually be towering over the humans passing by in Napier.
The FocusShark conservation
Help conserve shark populations by:
- Refraining from consuming shark fins and meat
- Purchasing cosmetic/health products that don't contain squalene (shark liver oil)
- Avoiding pet food that list 'white fish' as an ingredient as it likely is shark
- Supporting responsible shark tourism operations and experience the animals in their natural habitat
