The Sarah Shark Project is a series of six documentaries filmed around Australia focusing on the natural history of sharks, public perception of sharks, diving with sharks and conservation.
We are a group of 5 divers and filmmakers who independently produced this series. Our aim is to raise public awareness on a plethora of shark-related issues and highlight places in Australia where you can dive with these beautiful creatures.
Our first two films feature Wobbegongs at Byron Bay and Great White Sharks in South Australia. The third episode focuses on Grey Nurse Sharks at South West Rocks and Wolf Rock while the fourth and fifth episodes are on reef sharks on the Great Barrier Reef and Port Jackson Sharks at Nelson Bay, NSW.
Our sixth and final film featured Whale Sharks and Silky Sharks at Christmas Island – an epic finale where we draw conclusions from the series.
In December 2013/early 2014 the series was broadcast on GEM and channel 9 in Australia.
The Sarah Shark project is independently funded and only made possible by kind donations of time, video and still imagery and resources from fellow shark lovers. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported the project thus far and hope that you have enjoyed the films.
