Description

Visiting Explorer Program with William Winram

Join William Winram on his journey into Ocean Exploration spanning nearly fifty years, starting as early as his toddler days with his father who taught him how to dive and respect the sea, followed by his first encounters with sharks as a young adult, and many years later, competing in the sport of freediving, in which he stumbled into in his early forties. After having broken countless Pan-American and world records, William Winram decided to hold his breath for ocean exploration and put his athletic skills at the service of scientific research for ocean conservation. You will see how he approaches large marine predators for the purpose of placing telemetric tags or taking photographs and what information is collected from such encounters. From the timid scalloped hammerhead shark, to the almighty great white shark, William will beguile you with his underwater tales.

Winram is an Ocean Explorer, IUCN Oceans Ambassador and founder of The Watermen Project, an NPO dedicated to ocean conservation. He spends his time traveling the world for conservation related projects and events, conferences as well as expeditions organized for The Watermen Project. This NPO provides assistance to scientific research by tagging, photographing and filming many different species of sharks and other large marine fauna. He has been exploring the underwater world and sharing stories of his endeavors on a single breath of air for more than four decades.
