In March 2019, our institute leads an expedition to Shark Bay, Western Australia. Shark Bay, a place that preserves the beauty of its origins, remains nearly inaccessible except by sea. Many French explorers have sailed across the bay. Nicolas Baudin of course; before him Saint-Aloüarn took possession of New Holland for King Louis XV in 1772. And many others.
With our partner Leon Deschamps, founder of the Shark Ark sanctuary, we dive into the bay to observe the sharks. We are carrying out tests on new 3D underwater VR cameras. We follow in the tracks of 18th century explorers left in the memory of the coastal aborigines. This exploration will lead to 2D and 3D documentaries and photo reports.
