Collaboration to help protect grey nurse sharks

A legendary marine conservationist and filmmaker is teaming up with a Sunshine Coast marine tourism operator to film a new documentary.

Sunreef Mooloolaba recently hosted Valerie Taylor as she filmed part of her upcoming documentary and met with the marine-loving Sunshine Coast community for a booking signing of her autobiography An Adventurous Life.

Valerie, alongside her late husband Ron, is considered an Australian icon and world expert in marine conservation and underwater filmmaking, including her work shooting scenes for the movie Jaws.

Her new documentary will see her collaborate with Sunreef Mooloolaba to focus on the habitats of the critically endangered grey nurse shark.

The documentary follows the journey of the next generation of marine conservationists, carrying on Valerie’s legacy, including local cultural leaders, youth and leading dive operators located along the east coast’s grey nurse shark migration path.

“Hosting Valerie Taylor was an absolute honour and privilege,” Sunreef Mooloolaba spokesperson says. “Valerie is a true champion of the oceans, and we were humbled by the opportunity to team up on a documentary and impact campaign that aligns perfectly with Sunreef’s mission to celebrate and conserve marine life.”
