The Rob Stewart Sharkwater Foundation is committed to protecting sharks, our ecosystems and our oceans. Our Fin-Free and Shark Free campaigns bring awareness to issues facing sharks and oceans and inspire action. Rob believed that one person can make a difference and together we can bring positive change: “Conservation is the preservation of human life on earth. And that, above all else is worth fighting for.” Our mission is to create the tools required to engage others in educating our communities worldwide.

Playing in tidal pools with my children, hiking with my Rhodesian Ridgeback, gardening with my husband, trail running, and seeing the beauty of the world through my camera.
The epaulette shark fascinates me as these little creatures can walk (slowly) on their pectoral fins to forage in tidal pools!
