Jacopo was so impressed by the huge pelagic life of Baja that he thought that the best way to protect this amazing Fauna is to share this wonders with all the people and inform them on the importance of protecting sharks and other top predators to keep the balance of the ocean.
Cabo Shark Dive has a strong ecological objective:
We protect the local species of sharks and pelagic predators by offer the best safe, close and personal underwater interactions.
This is the best way to raise awareness on the issue of conservation of marine environments and encourage more people as possible to love sharks and shark sighting activities, to make species be worth more alive than dead.
We also promote the development of free diving with sharks as a complementary activity to the fishery. Shark diving, snorkelling and sharks watching are eco-sustainable activities, with no extractive use that contributes to the reduction of fishing pressure on shark populations and other pelagic predators, which currently are in a critical situation. We involve local fisherman in the project, to help the community and the nature at the same time. While they work with us they make more money and they don’t kill any fish.
After the dive, do your part to dispel myths and push shark conservation. Tell others (particularly non-divers) about your experience. Post pictures and videos – focusing on demystifying sharks (not the Jaws type.) Your shark diving experience can really help the ocean.
