While most of the world fears sharks and views them as dangerous predators, in Fiji they are protected, respected, and even revered as gods. For the fifth episode of our digital series The Deep End Madison Stewart, Fusion’s resident Shark Girl, travels to this archipelago in the South Pacific. She went there to explore how the Fijian shark-god, known as Dakuwaqa, plays into the protection and conservation of the region’s sharks. By speaking with tourism operators, conservationists, and local residents, Stewart shows us how Fiji became one of the few places on the planet where sharks aren’t just protected, but also play a vital role in the economic success of the region.
