ONE GIRL'S PASSIONATE FIGHT TO SAVE THE CREATURE SHE LOVES

Conservationist, filmmaker, activist, delinquent – 19-year-old Madison Stewart has been called many things, but to her friends she’s simply ‘shark girl’.

Every year thousands of sharks are killed for commercial use. Growing up on the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Great Barrier Reef, Madison realised the creature she loved most was disappearing fast.

Turning passion into action, she sets out to stop the slaughter and shatter perceptions of these alleged maneaters. Armed with just a video camera, she fearlessly swims with tiger sharks, feeds a rowdy gang of Caribbean reef sharks and removes fishhooks from the mouths of oceanic silky sharks. She also investigates how other countries protect their sharks, as she bravely takes her campaign to the heart of the shark fishing industry.
