Scientists, marine conservationists, and government officials from countries in the Americas have proposed a protected ocean corridor between Ecuador and Costa Rica to protect endangered species from extinction.

The proposed ocean corridor, or swim-way, would run along the Cocos Ridge. This 435-mile (700 km) underwater mountain range connects the Galapagos Islands Marine Reserve in Ecuador and the Cocos Islands Marine Reserve in Costa Rica. The swim-way aims to protect such species from fishing pressure in the surrounding waters.

It was really interesting working with Liveaboard and the International Business Times on this article about being in the water with sharks and what to do if you feel threatened by a shark as a diver or swimmer.

It's great to see some positive media coverage for shark in the Daily Mail Australia this summer season.

Following on from the tragic death of a scuba diver at Cocos Island, Costa Rica we have been thinking about safety precautions for divers (and other ocean users) to take for safe and enjoyable dives with sharks.

I am excited to be featured in the latest edition of Dive New Zealand magazine. I discuss in my article how it is easier now, more so than ever, to experience marine conservation and make a difference to the ocean. With the advent of social media and global connectivity, we can all get involved and without necessarily leaving home.

It is World Oceans Day on 8th June and Kathryn is stepping up post-illness by entering a dive trip competition, in which she plans to give a new round of shark conservation talks.

Please consider voting for her - it's as easy as liking her photo in the link in the blog.

This is Kathryn's next recovery step and way of following on from the 87 events we have done so far in 8 countries, which reached 7144 people.

Thanks so much. For the sharks!
