Following the success of his film Sharkwater, Rob Stewart aims to educate people about ocean acidification, the “evil brother of climate change”, with his new film Revolution and book Save The Humans. Plus, we take a whirlwind tour of animal rights events happening across southern Ontario in October.
Rob Stewart, director of the award-winning film Sharkwater, makes a compelling case for the global protection of sharks. Busting the myth that sharks are unstoppable killing machines, Stewart portrays them as complex and evolved beings whose survival is threatened by the lucrative shark-fin industry. Stewart has worked alongside Sea Shepherd to expose and stop shark poachers, at times under harrowing conditions. He joins us to talk about his film, his travels, and why sharks matter.
