Riley Elliott is the Shark Man...

Riley Elliott is an avid spearfisherman, surfer, scuba diver and a PhD student in shark biology at the University of Auckland. Elliott’s passion for sharks developed while working in South Africa where he began freediving (no cage!) with great whites and became addicted to the ‘surprising calm’ he felt when swimming with sharks.

With a quarter of the world’s sharks and rays threatened with extinction, it turns out humans might be the more dangerous animal. Author of Shark Man: One Kiwi Man's Mission to Save our Most Feared and Misunderstood Predator (2014), Elliott last year hosted a 30-part television series by the same name.
