Shark advocate speaking at University of Victoria

Rob Stewart, the filmmaker who brought the slaughter of sharks for the fin trade to light in the 2006 film Sharkwater, continues his efforts Thursday (Feb. 2) with a presentation at the University of Victoria.

In Beyond Sharkwater, Stewart will speak about the situation that prompted him to take action, give an update on the global outcry against the killing of sharks for their fins, and outline his current environmental projects.

The presentation goes from 8 to 10 p.m. in the Farquhar Auditorium. Tickets are $10 ($5 for students), with proceeds benefitting United Conservationists. Call 250-721-8480 to reserve tickets or visit www.auditorium.uvic.ca/tickets/.
