Lesley Rochat - Talking RETHINK THE SHARK at TEDx

I’m in one of those phases that is all too familiar: too much to do, too little time! We have been setting up our new public office and getting the wheels turning for our exciting AfriOceans Warriors Environmental Education Programme, funded by the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund of South Africa. We are hectic with Marine Week which is soon upon us, International Coastal Cleanup, which is next week, the Simonstown Festival around the corner, exhibits and talks pending, lobbying quietly behind the scenes still ongoing, new campaigns, documentaries, books and research projects developing, and much, much more. (Visit the AfriOceans website to find out more about all we do)

With so much on the go I only just heard a message from the Expresso Show, a live TV news show, asking me to talk about the last shark ‘attack’, and unfortunately they had to find a replacement since I had not responded. So it goes… but while I struggle to keep up with the workload, fortunately my voice is still being heard, this time through TEDx and a talk I gave called RETHINK THE SHARK, at the TEDxStellenbosch conference, which was recently uploaded onto YouTube, and which I share with you here.

I look forward to sharing more of what we are doing, in the meanwhile, watch my space!
