Love sharks? Scared of sharks? Don't know anything about sharks? - This channel is for you!

Sharkphoria is my word for “the joyful feeling I get deep inside when I see a shark”.

With 8 years of experience, I create fun, science based videos and share exclusive insights and first hand experiences from my world of sharks and shark research.


WHAT YOU GET?
Access to videos with prime content in 3 different categories
》 Shark PhD series (shark research, studies, science)
》PhDive series (shark diving, dive skills, gear, marine environment, issues, shark mitigation, conservation)
》SharkPHoria Diaries series (vlogs, island life, PhD struggles, fieldwork expeditions)


WHO AM I?
I'm Johanna Kohler - SCUBA dive instructor, marine biologist, shark researcher and a PhD candidate based in the Cayman Islands to study the local shark population.


I NEED YOUR HELP?
My goal is to use my knowledge to develop better ways of protecting the marine environment and its wildlife, including sharks, as well as teaching others about it in return. The research funding covers research/conservation expenses only, it does not cover my living costs.
By stepping into my world and getting access to prime content, you enable me to continue with my research and conservation efforts on island and bring awesome sharky videos to my Patrons!
