Short Preview Clips From Sharkwater Extinction
Sharkwater Extinction, the sequel to Rob Stewart's groundbreaking 2007 film Sharkwater, received its UK premiere on 22 March at an event hosted by HRH Princess Eugenie of York. In Sharkwater Extinction, Stewart, who tragically lost his life during filming, continues to explore not only how the illegal shark-finning trade is decimating the world's shark populations, but also how human activities are unwittingly leading to its continued existence.
In the first of two short clips from the movie, Rob gives a brief insight into how sharks are re-branded and sold under alternative names, and how they find their way into a wide variety of products in which unwitting consumers use on a daily basis. We are, as Rob says: 'Smearing endangered super-predators on our faces.'
