Mighty Maxine, A Shark’s Legacy

Lesley Rochat, one of the minds behind the Rethink the Shark ad campaign, has posted a new video in conjunction with her recent article which appears in Africa Geographic magazine this month. "Mighty Maxine, A Shark’s Legacy" follows the story of Maxine, a sand tiger shark (also known as a ragged-tooth shark), and her journey from being accidentally entangled in a fishing net, tagged and released, caught by another fisherman, transported to live at the Two Oceans Aquarium for nine years, to being released back to the wild.

For more information about the Mighty Maxine campaign visit AfriOceans Conservation Alliance, where you can download a PDF of the Africa Geographic article and sign the petition to help protect multiple shark species.
