Renowned marine artist Guy Harvey, according to a WPTV 5 report in Florida, is traveling to the Bahamas to record the beauty of sharks in an effort to help raise awareness about the plight these magnificent predators face, with the strong prospect of a commercial shark-finning operation taking root there. Also involved is marine artist Wyland.
This is fantastic news for the shark conservation movement. Caribbean reef sharks, which are popular among scuba-diving tourists, should not be decimated so people in other parts of the world, notably China, can enjoy their precious shark-fin soup.
The Harvey team will add celebrity to the conservation effort, but it's not the first to use art to capture the beauty of the region's sharks. Last month Joe Romeiro and dive-master Cristina Zenato created a video that featured captivating footage and stunning imagery during a Grand Bahama Island feeding session.
Can Harvey and Wyland produce something as compelling. Take a look and see what you think:
