Where possible, while in the field PIP blogs
are uploaded with
images of shark and ray species that have been encountered or
documented and their IUCN status and notes on their vulnerability. Peripheral images of the fishermen and local shark researchers and the
regions traveled through are also highlighted.
about the expedition also appear on Elasmodiver.com and other
shark related conservation websites.
The images resulting from PIP Expeditions are offered in electronic format to
regional conservation organizations that are working
within the appropriate geographic region. This facilitates the
production of more inspiring educational material for inclusion in
regional conservation campaigns.
Regional media companies are also solicited while in the field to
stimulate local public awareness.
networks are invited to conduct interviews before departure
and follow up with interviews in the field when
articles regularly appear in a broad selection of diving magazines and every
effort is made to encourage more mainstream magazines to run
stories on PIP expeditions and conservation efforts.
PIP Founder and Expedition Leader Andy Murch is
available for select speaking engagements.
