Camel EcoTribe gives shark lessons

Camel EcoTribe gives shark lessonsOn 14 December our instructor and Eco Tribe leader Cath Bates gave four lessons about sharks to local kids aged 6 to 18 years at Sharm French School. Cath talked about shark biology, behaviour, species and conservation in an interactive way using props to help the children understand senses of sharks, like smell and touch. The kids also watched a short video about sharks and looked at photos by Camel’s staff and guests in Sharm El Sheikh’s Red Sea of different species of sharks. The older students also learned about finning issues, overfishing and bycatch, as well as the factors which may create aggressive behaviour. The main focus of the day was conservation and the importance of the role of the apex predator in the ocean. "It was such a positive day with lots of questions and activities. About time that sharks had some good press! If we lose them, we lose the health of our oceans" Cath commented.
