stop the wa shark cull



Killing anything is unnecessary.
 This shark cull is unsustainable and could be damaging for the ocean ecosystems around Australia and even the world! 100 million sharks are killed annually due to shark finning and bycatch already, Australia doesn't need to add to this huge number! But they ARE, despite citizen protests!

Sharks are wild animals, when we enter the ocean we are entering an unspoken agreement that we are in their domain. They aren't man hunters, nor is man a part of a sharks regular diet and you can take preventative measures to ensure you are safe in the ocean.

So here it is Cullin Barnet:
Sharks don't do it to you,
You don't do it to them.
Stop the Western Australia Shark Cull.

Some food for thought:
It takes a coward to kill a shark, it takes a real man to swim with one.

FINconceivable Teaser



An Animated Documentary Short by Lily Williams
Summer 2014

Ever wonder what would happen to the ocean if sharks disappear? This is a question I tackle in my shark infographics "What Happens When Sharks Disappear?" but there is so much more, which is why I was inspired to create FINconceivable.
 
FINconceivable (Summer 2014) an animated short, appropriate for all ages, touches on issues of overfishing, shark finning and the trophic cascade! It inspires people to further educate themselves on the importance of keystone species in our ecosystems and explaining why our humble planet needs healthy oceans to thrive.

Thank you to Shark Stewards and Ocean Defender Hawaii for the support!

Follow here and my Twitter and Vimeo for updates on the film through its release online in early Summer 2014!

thesisizing


With second semester of my senior year in full swing, I felt it was finally time to announce my senior thesis film!

After the success of my shark infographics, I decided to make a short animated documentary on shark finning and the trophic cascade. Last semester was spent working on visuals and story and this semester will be spent animating/painting! I am looking forward to sharing my film in early summer. Keep checking back here, my tumblr and twitter for film updates!

Here are some finned friends you may see in my film!
