I’m an environmental and adventurous person. I’m passionate about conservation and protection of our natural resources. I’m a scuba instructor that loves teaching and taking diver beneath the waves. I love what I do and I have no regrets in the field of conservation and as a scuba diver that loves killing lionfish.
What do you like about lionfish hunting?
Lionfish hunting is an awesome underwater activity. I find it so fun and I like spearing lionfish because they are destroying my reef and they are very delicious to eat. I also create my lionfish jewelry from the fins of the lionfish. Spear them, Eat them and Wear them.
What do you like about the lionfish community?
The lionfish community is willing to learn and participants and bring more awareness of lionfish. The government and NGOs are putting enough effort into battling the invasive species in our reef. Education outreach and lionfish culling has been reached out there in the community.
