March 2014 – Shark Night!!
March Club Night – a night not to be missed! Join us at the Waikato Sport Fishing Club Rooms on Grantham St, Hamilton and listen to New Zealand’s very own Riley Elliott, a world renowned expert on sharks, and listen to him as he tells us about his adventures around the world.
Riley now runs the world’s largest blue shark tagging programme; he has led the charge with the NZ Shark Alliance, successfully achieving a ban on all shark finning in New Zealand by 2016. He has worked at, and later managed, the Oceans Research Great White Station in South Africa. Sharks are extremely vulnerable to overexploitation; Riley’s efforts are going a long way to ensuring 500 million years of shark evolution isn’t undone in one generation!
