The BIG REVEAL:
So, a part of this story is talking about factors that are inhibiting the recovery of California's sea otters. Southern sea otters' population numbers have stalled - growth wise.
A part of that is many of the sea otters that die each year are being taking by great white sharks.
Adding in this element and somehow filming great whites seemed nearly impossible for me.
I am THRILLED to announce - thanks to Great White Adventures (California) - I will be filming great white sharks, near San Fransisco, in October!!!!!
They have graciously invited me to go out a few times with them, during the cage diving season in the late fall.
The chance of original great white footage is just incredible!!!!
NOW, this little fundraiser currently underway has become vitally IMPORTANT. A 2 -3 day stay in San Fransisco, and actually filming footage at that point, was NOT part of my plan....but can easily happen if we meet our goal! (As of today, we're 15% there).
