To protect sharks in last summer2019-4-12
In last summer vacation, our G10 student Kevin Fang participated in an international volunteer project to protect sharks. In the course of work, Kevin experienced different types of shark conservation work with other volunteers from all over the world. For example, shark marking, mangrovere forestation, environmental cleanliness, community education, etc. He worked six hours a day for two consecutive weeks and he learned a lot.

Good afternoon dear parents and faculty, I'm Kevin from 10B. I came to NAIS for one year, NAIS has a great variety of courses and extracurricular activities, I gained a lot in the last year. During my last summer vacation, I had an amazing opportunity to be a volunteer to protect sharks.
Shark is on the top of the food chain, usually they will hunt for the older, weaker or heavily ill prey. So sharks directly maintain the balance of the entire ecosystem and the food chain of all levels. However, today shark fin consumption has greatly reduced shark numbers, down 80% in 50 years.
We went our Shark dive on the 9th day. I was a little bit nervous and scared before I get down. We used a rope to climb down into the sea, and our diving is 30m this time. For our safety, we followed the coach and stayed behind the reef to watch the Sharks. Later we helped the scientist to tag the sharks.
All in all, this was a beautiful and fulfilling way to spend my summer. I made so many new friends, and learned so much not only about the environment, but also about world culture as a whole.
Sharks play a key role in the ocean. We appreciate Kevin and other volunteers' contribution to protecting sharks.
Let's save our sharks, our oceans and our planet together!
