We got some happy kids this morning. Thresher shark storybooks were just distributed to two schools located in two villages of Alor, where shark fishing communities are located. Their exciting faces, and shouts, “Mas Rafid! Hiu Tikus Hiu Tikus! (Sir Rafid, Thresher sharks!)” So happy that they’re still remembering our previous presentations at school about thresher sharks in Alor.
Hopefully, the adventures of Nia & Nimang with the Tresi the thresher shark will inspire them to love thresher sharks and its friends in Alor.
Thanks to Ahmad Hilmy Mubarak for his awesome artistry to translate our conservation story into beautiful artwork!
