    This month we're stoked to have our good friend Richard Theiss presenting for us. If you haven't seen Island of the Great White Shark you're totally missing out. But don't worry, Richard is bringing copies :D

    For those of you that don't know Richard......

    Richard Theiss is a cinematographer, media consultant, and shark advocate whose work has been used by National Geographic, Discovery Channel, Google Earth/Ocean and many others. He has spent the past seven years filming the white sharks at Isla Guadalupe, more than any other videographer. He produced the highly regarded documentary, Island of the Great White Shark, and authors a very successful blog: RTSeaBlog – keeping an eye on nature.

    Lecture Summary: Diving With Sharks & the Future of Shark Conservation

    While you can travel the globe to see sharks in the wild, for U.S. divers there are two locations relatively close that offer some of the best shark diving in the world. Richard Theiss will introduce you to these locations and recount some of his up-close-and-personal experiences. But while seeing sharks can be exciting, the possible extinction of the species looms as a dark cloud over their future. Shark conservation has grown and matured over the years and is now at a critical juncture. Richard will explain where it goes from here and what we as divers can do to further the cause.

    Details
    Where: Hollywood Divers - 3575 Cahuenga Blvd West Los Angeles, CA 9006
    When: 7:30pm.....presentation at 8pm
    We'll be grabbing drinks next door after the presentation too.

    Hit us up with questions and we hope to see you all there!
