 KALIMANTAN, INDONESIA ARTISANAL SHARK FISHERIES EXPEDITION

 

PIP is working on an expedition to document the artisanal shark fishermen of Kalimantan, Indonesia in order to film the endemic shark species that they encounter. Global catch statistics imply that the winghead shark (a rarely encountered species of hammerhead) is more commonly caught near Kalimantan than anywhere else within its range. There are numerous other species that may also be documented by working in this area.

PIP Photographer Andy Murch is in the process of raising a budget for this expedition.
