    White Shark Interest Group Podcast Ep#013 - ORCAS with ROB LAWRENCE

    Episode 13 of the White Shark Interest Group Podcast, Facebook's' largest White Shark specific group, covering science, conservation, news, photography, video and debate.


    We are once again joined by the legendary Rob Lawrence (African Shark Eco-Charters, BBC, NatGeo, Discovery Channel, Shark Week) for an on the ground update on the shark populations in South Africa, specifically False Bay.


    Copy /Paste "news" articles keep reappearing claiming the role of the Orcas attacking Great White Sharks is the main factor in their numbers declining these past years. So Rob gives us further updates and insight, and once again generously shares his knowledge of the area, being the man who has travelled to Seal Island, False Bay more than anyone else alive today.


    This is a MUST LISTEN podcast and a rare chance to spend time in the company of a true pioneer and advocate in the shark world.

    White Shark Interest Group Podcast Ep#012 - SHARKS VS DOLPHINS with DREW SCERBO

    Episode 12 of the White Shark Interest Group Podcast, Facebook's' largest White Shark specific group, covering science, conservation, news, photography, video and debate.


    Do you ever hear those reports of someone in the water with sharks, who claim friendly dolphins showed up and helped send the shark away? Or reports of dolphins ramming sharks with their noses?


    Is there any truth to this? Are dolphins somehow in tune with their land based mammal human friends? Or is there something else going on?


    Our resident admin, and shark and dolphin expert, the mighty Drew Scerbo chats to Melissa and Ricardo about all things marine mammals and their relationships with sharks.


    There is SO MUCH education in this podcast and some truly JAW DROPPING revelations about dolphins and sharks!

    White Shark Interest Group Podcast Ep#011 - IS IT OK TO LIKE JAWS?

    White Shark Interest Group Podcast Ep#011 - IS IT OK TO LIKE JAWS?

    Episode 11 of the White Shark Interest Group Podcast, Facebook's' largest White Shark specific group, covering science, conservation, news, photography, video and debate.


    This episode features the team discussing how we reconcile loving the movie Jaws so much, with the direct negative impact it had in throwing the "monster shark" image to the masses, while at the same time advocating for positive shark messages and protection through education. Is it OK, as a shark advocate, to like the movie Jaws?


    For the first time on our podcasts we welcome fellow admins Anna and Drew to the conversation, and entertain you while we debate, with clips from the film, the music, and some serious shark advocacy discussion amongst the trivia, fun and sheer passion for all things sharks....and Jaws!


    We do not claim copyright of any the audio from the film used this podcast, and only do so with respect and fair use in mind.


    Do you love sharks and are passionate about protecting them? Do you also love Jaws? How do you reconcile the two?

    This episode features group founder Dirk Schmidt turning the hosting tables on group admin Ricardo Lacombe to learn How To Make A Shark Film!


    Ricardo discusses the step by step process from inception to pre-production to shooting to post-production and eventual release of the documentary Great White Shark Legend (co-directed by Rachel Lacombe), a documentary which aims to dispel the myths around White Shark behavior as portrayed in the media. The film features prominent South African shark experts such as Rob Lawrence, Alison Kock, Brandon Kilbride and the groups own Dirk Schmidt.


    What does it take as an independent film-maker on a low budget to find your way to producing and directing a film about Great White sharks? Ricardo shares his experiences, stories, attitudes to sharks, and offers advice and invitation to anyone with a story to tell about sharks! YOU too can make a shark film and this podcast will delve into how.


    This feature length episode features clips and music from the film in a real insight into writing and filming a fresh look at the misunderstood apex predator, the Great White Shark, and you can continue the story!
