In memory of filmmaker Rob Stewart who drowned tragically off the coast of Florida while making a sequel to his award winning film Sharkwater. Rob spent his life protecting life - life at its most fundamental, elemental, evolutionary level. He had something to say and said it beautifully. He will be greatly missed.

About Rob Stewart


Rob was a biologist, conservationist, activist and filmmaker. Sharkwater: Extinction follows his two internationally award and

winning films, Sharkwater (2006) Revolution
(2012). Sharkwater brought the devastating issue of shark finning used in shark fin soup to the world stage. Revolution was the first feature film to expose the devastating effects that Ocean Acidification would bring; much worse than scientists had thought climate change would be.   Born in 1979 and raised in Toronto, Stewart graduated from the University of Western Ontario. He dedicated his life to conservation, saying: “Conservation is the preservation of human life.  And, that, above all else is worth fighting for.” He taught the world to love the oceans and their creatures and not fear sharks through his iconic images of hugging and free diving with sharks and mantas.
