Hand in Hand with the Sharks.

Freediver Lukas Müller has a strong bond to the depths of the oceans and the wild animals living within.

Since the tender age of 3, Lukas is fascinated by sharks. It all began with the sighting of a Blue Shark on a family Holiday in Spain. While all beach guests on that day were petrified by the beast in the water, Lukas fell in love. From that moment on, he spent every free second underwater.

Lukas has a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a Master of Science in Marine Resources Management specialising in marine protected areas and sharks. Ever since he has dedicated his time and efforts to research, conservation and protection of marine life.

To get close to sharks, freediving is essential because scuba divers are very noisy and the unfamiliar loud noises irritate and scare away the animals.
"When we enter the ocean, we are guests. In the water, we are all the same. We are Monkeys trying to survive in an element alien to us." Lukas Müller, Watermonkey
