Growing up on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, sharks were Madi’s family. But even at 14 years old, Madi had noticed a decline in shark populations everywhere she went.
As part of a new generation of millennial activists, Madi is a fighter determined to turn impossible dreams into reality. Her cause is her life.
The real enemy is fear. Trying to ‘Shark-Proof’ the ocean for our safety is as outdated and futile as Australia’s once famous Rabbit-Proof Fence. To decrease the hundreds of millions of sharks killed each year Madi must flip the stigma and teach people to love so that others will join her in her fight to protect sharks.
As she travels around the world, Madi works with daring scientists proving sharks’ connection to climate change, and it is here she has an epiphany. She risks life, limb and arrest to help shark fishermen become shark tour operators instead. Madi will show the value of live sharks over dead ones, change minds, and help save the planet -- one shark at a time
