Guide Bio

Kathy is the founder of The Dorsal Effect. Kathy decided she wanted to do something so that future generations could still see sharks alive. Kathy started volunteering on the education arm of Shark Savers Singapore (and still is!),after learning about the shark fishing and finning situation.

She found herself in Lombok talking to shark fishermen about ending the shark fishing on the supply side of the chain by providing ecotourism as an alternative source of income. Conseravation of sharks through hiring fisherman to tak e tourists out for snorkeling trips instead of shark fishing. A win for the sharks and a win for the fisherman.

“I want to live in a world where my children, and my children’s children can still see sharks alive in the oceans.”
– Kathy Xu
