Hey Rob! Big fan here. You do a great job at putting the information out there for everyone in a clear and beautiful way. I once heard you at the ROM and you urged people to find their own way to make a difference because we don't have clear cut solutions. I turned to music. I write songs about social and environmental issues. Check me out at www.justinsingermusic.com. Let me know if you could use it/me for anything! I wanted to ask, how/who do you stay motivated when at some times the issues seems so massive and out of our day to day grasps? Thanks! Justin
I'm a grade 9 student. I seen your films they've changed my life. I've done done my speech on Revolution to promote viewers. I would like to know what should I be doing to become an oceanographer like yourself.
It is hard enough getting 1st world countries to get on board for the revolution. How can we bring about change in third world countries where they still burn garbage and don't have the education to know how to make small changes?
Hi Rob! A Norwegian fan here :) I can't wait to watch Revolution! I saw Sharkwater just after it came out, and since then I knew that the whole time of my life, I was right when all my friends thought I was wrong. I have shown Sharkwater to many of my friends, and now they know what I was talking about.
So, my question. If your plans goes as you wants and not only is aware of the problems, but does something with them. How will the situation be in 5-10-20 years from now?
Is there anyone we could contact about setting up a Skype interview with you for our documentary about De Extinction and conservation? We really feel your opinion is important to us and has shaped our development as aspiring documentary film makers?
Hi rob, I just recently learned that the communities in and around Vancouver have backed down on the banning,of SHARKFIN soup. Besides boycotting what else can we,do to help force Canada to ban the import. I am so embarrassed to even be Canadian at this point
Hi Rob! First off, you are so inspiring...so thank you! I have yet to see Revolution but am anxious to do so. I work for a small NGO that works on all kinds of issues of social justice and I am constantly faced with the same question by friends, family, new acquaintances: they are apathetic to most causes due to the perceived sheer volume of them all. They say there are too many causes and they don't know what to do or where to take action. What do you answer when people tell you that there are too many causes to support and they don't know where to start?
One of the first things I saw when I went snorkelling in Turks was a reef shark when I walked out to the reef looking right at me about a meter away. They're likely more scared of us than we could ever be of them. Quite cool to see one without even being on a snorkelling excursion. What I want to know is, what's next for you? Will there be a Sharkwater sequel?
Speaking of TV series, what are the chances something like Discovery's "Shark Week" would decide to focus more of their week on the environmental aspect of Sharks rather than retelling old tales? Have you contacted them? I think for Shark Week finatics might really appreciate being informed on how they can make a difference.
I graduated with a BSc Honours in Biology. I wanted to ask how can one go about making changing the world a career?
My future is an open-book. I would like to return to school one day. I am not sure what I would like to do and how to go about doing it. I only know a little bit about careers out there.
Revolution really opened my eyes. I have been advocating animal welfare issues for a long time. It was refreshing to know that the teeny tiny baby steps that I have taken and talk about (veganism and buying local) goes to fight all of that. Thank you for showing footage about the Alberta oil sands. I had no idea what the magnitude of it was. I was so wrapped up in fighting my own battles to do more research into it. Thanks for opening my eyes to it.
