This summer I was contacted by Fay Crevoshay - Director of Communications from Wildcoast an NGO working within Mexico to effect conservation change.
Wildcoast as it turns out is one of the hardest working NGO's I have encountered and was recently nominated for Charity of the Year.
They are also masters of Mexican media.
Wildcoast had in mind a multi part series shot at Isla Guadalupe and was interested in positively featuring the resident white sharks, shark tourism, and Mexican lead shark research.
In short "The Trifecta" we seek when working with mainstream media.
The end result came out very nicely. This three part series was shown first in Mexico City to several million viewers and across Mexico in the fall of 2009. It is in Spanish and we got some great industry quotes from Captain and owner Greg Grivetto of Horizon Charters with on site shark footage shot by Richard Theiss from RTSea Productions.
Kudos to the entire team from Wildcoast who worked so hard to bring positive conservation messaging to Mexico and to all the people featured in this informative series.
