WSV founder Skyler Thomas has won over 20 awards for his films, has swam with 20 species of shark, and interviewed more than 20 shark researchers. His presentation, Purpose, is currently nominated for TedX. He is available to give multimedia presentations at a wide variety of venues ranging from museums to elementary classrooms.
In addition, the self-contained exhibit "Killer Personalities" can be booked for display at locations across the United States. This gallery consists of high def photo prints of sharks who have been identified as having very special personalities. A video presentation consisting of interviews with each of the divers who encountered these sharks as well as stunning underwater footage followed by a Q&A session completes each gallery evening.
"Skyler has kept our audience spellbound over the years answering questions about shark ecosystems and filming them in their underwater habitat..." - SFIOFF Education Program
"Skyler's enthusiasm and personal style has made him a great choice to speak with at risk youth..." - PW, Farallones Marine Sanctuary Association
Skyler works independently and funds his work out of pocket. Although, WSV would love to educate everyone for free, funds are needed to continue the work and hopefully turn the education aspect of the company into a full time gig. For that reason, please carefully consider what your organization is able to contribute.
