Sharks are the lifeblood of the ocean. If we didn't have sharks the food chain would be imbalanced. They regulate fish populations. Jaws was my first encounter with a shark. I know scary for a little girl of just 8 years old, but I identified very strongly with Richard Dreyfus's character who studied sharks. Although I didn't grow up to be a marine biologist, I certainly have an affinity for the ocean. I love the ocean. And I know I am deeply connected to it. We all are. In fact, if the ocean dies, we die! So that's why I'm on earth, to save the planet. Well I know a lofty goal, however when I met my business partners it seemed doable. But I need your help in educating people about sharks and other species and why it is our job to save them. Through my gift of making plush toys that make everyone smile, I can break down those stereotypes that my favorite movie kind of scared everyone about. Protect a shark and you can most certainly make a difference. It will save a life. A shark life that is so precious to our planet. I hope WE can save the world together.
