MICK FANNING releases new trailer for SAVE THIS SHARK documentary five years after J-Bay Open

Mick Fanning and National Geographic have released the first full-length trailer for Save This Shark, five years to the day of his unforgettable shark encounter at the J-Bay Open in 2015.

Save This Shark is a two-part documentary that follows the 3 x World Champion Surfer turned ocean activist on his mission to explore shark conservation.
 
From his hometown of Ballina to the tropics of the Bahamas, Fanning returns to the open waters to conquer his fear of sharks and better understand them.
 
Along the way, Fanning investigates the issue of sharks versus people, debunking common misconceptions and, learning about the latest technology helping humans and sharks safely co-exist while saving them from extinction.
 
The documentary also features the work of leading experts including Dr. Charlie Huveneers, Professor Colin Simpfendorfer, Dr. Neil Hammerschlag and renowned shark conservationist Cristina Zenato.

“It was a really personal journey for me to be able to reconnect with sharks in this way. They’re such magical, majestic and misunderstood creatures, so I’m excited to share my experience on screen, to show just how important they are to the environment and what it takes to protect them,” says Fanning.

Save This Shark marks the latest release by AACTA winning filmmaker and producer Michael Lawrence (Bra Boys, Fighting Fear, Uncensored with Michael Ware, You and Me, Proximity) and legendary award-winning filmmaker Taylor Steele as part of M&C Saatchi Group’s film and television production arm, THIS. Brought to life by the same creative minds behind the studio’s 2019 release, Save This Rhino, Fanning’s journey is the latest instalment in their series of conservation documentaries.

The two-part documentary will air on National Geographic Australia on Tuesday, September 15, 2020.

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC IS AVAILABLE ON FOXTEL, FETCH TV AND SKY NZ.
