SHARK MAN - Riley Elliott

What an amazing day we had on Friday because of the Mazda Foundation Treemendous Gaden Makeover.  As well as having The Bug Man visit, we were lucky to meet The Shark Man, Riley Elliott as well.

Riley talked to us about his love of sharks and how, like many people, he used to be scared of them.  He explained that people's fears are to do with the movie Jaws!  Sharks are the most intelligent creature of the ocean and have been around for longer than dinosaurs.  Riley swims and studies sharks for a living and was certainly passionate about their conservation.

 If you are swimming and come across a shark, look it in the eye then curl up into a ball to make yourself look as unlike a seal as you can!
