  9. Je suis profondément attristé par la mort de Rob, un personnage modèle pour moi tant sa cause est la mienne. Je suis triste pour sa famille, ses amis et proches…

    Il a vécu de sa passion, et a défendu les requins magistralement avec Sharkwater. Aujourd’hui les requins perdent l’un de leur plus grand défenseur et c’est triste. Il faudrait plus d’hommes comme lui.

    Cependant, il ne faut pas abandonner son projet, ne pas abandonner les requins. Il faut continuer le travail de Rob, qui est d’une importance primordiale pour les requins.

    Adieu grand homme !

  12. My heart is so heavy with this sad, sad news. Rob was such a huge inspiration in my life. I first watched Sharkwater when it came out in 2007, I was obsessed, I watched it repetitively for months on end. He opened my heart to the underwater world and since then I have had such love for sharks and the other creatures of the ocean. I have recently become Vegan and since his passing I plan to become a certified diver and my first trip this year will diving with bull sharks, it’s the only way I feel I can honor his memory, by fulfilling my dreams of exploring the ocean. I was so thrilled when he announced the making of Sharkwater 2, I couldn’t hit the order button fast enough. I hope we together can continue his incredible legacy. xoxo <3 I'll see you in the ocean soon Rob.
