Twelve legendary names from the world of underwater photography have come together to create a stunning, high quality, 2020 fundraising calendar in support of Bite-Back Shark & Marine Conservation.

Each photographer has hand-picked and donated a breath-taking image to inspire greater love and respect for the marine environment.


The line-up of contributors includes Alex Mustard, Amanda Cotton, Amos Nachoum, Christian Vizl, Cristina Mittermeier, David Doubilet, Doug Perrine, Ellen Cuylaerts, Greg Lecouer, Jason Isley, Shawn Heinrichs, Tanya Houppermas.

Campaign director at Bite-Back, Graham Buckingham, said: “These photographers are at the very top of their game and, between them, they have scooped over a hundred awards for their images. So to gather these giants of underwater photography in one place is a remarkable achievement that not only benefits the charity but also gives supporters a year’s worth of incredible images to enjoy.”

Alongside every image, each contributing photographer has provided commentary about the oceans and the need for greater protection.

Christian Vizl, from Mexico City, said: “Today the world’s oceans are in grave danger. Overfishing, pollution, plastics, climate change and other human pressures threaten the fundamental nature of the seas. We simply can’t afford for the oceans to reach a critical tipping point.”

Already Bite-Back has made significant progress in its campaign to make Britain the first country in the western world to ban the sale of shark products including shark fin soup, shark meat and items containing shark such as pet food and cosmetics.

The limited edition, A4 calendar, is printed on recycled paper using vegetable inks, by a climate neutral printer. It can be purchased online for £12 and can be shipped anywhere in the world.
