Bite-Back’s stunning 2017 calendar is on sale now featuring 13 images from the world’s most famous and celebrated underwater photographers including National Geographic legends David Doubilet and Brian Skerry.
Since 2009 Bite-Back has been producing this unique and remarkable fundraising calendar that unites the biggest, best and newest talent in underwater photography behind the charity’s campaign to make Britain shark fin free.
Photos from around the world capture the beauty and majesty of underwater encounters with sharks, sailfish, dolphins, seals and, for the first time ever, polar bears.
As the multiple award-winning photographer, Amos Nahcoum, is quick to point out ‘More people have landed on the moon than have taken images of polar bears underwater.’
Campaign director for Bite-Back, Graham Buckingham, said: “This calendar is an incredible celebration of the oceans and marine life. There’s no other publication like it in the world and it’s a huge privilege to count these remarkable photographers as friends and supporters of our campaign to end the sale of shark fin soup in this country.”
So far the charity has inspired a 63% fall in the number UK restaurants selling shark fin soup including the country’s only Michelin-starred Chinese restaurant. According to Bite-Back there are just 24 restaurants left on its target list before it can announce that Britain is the first country in the world to ban the controversial dish.
Bite-Back is currently on a UK tour with its patron Steve Backshall taking its shark conservation message to 30,000 people.
