Clearwater, FL (June 3, 2016) – With Discovery Channel’s “Shark Week” kicking off later this month, Clearwater Marine Aquarium (CMA) will feature “Shark Girl,” a documentary by Madison Stewart, as the June session of the free Making Waves Speaker Series.

Madison Stewart, 20, travels all over the world to share her stories and promote her mission to save sharks. Stewart grew up living on a boat, swimming in the ocean and diving through the Great Barrier Reef. She has witnessed firsthand the decrease in shark populations and has dedicated her life to educating the public.

Join CMA for a screening of 20-year-old Madison Stewart’s documentary “Shark Girl”. “Nothing feels safer or more natural than diving straight into shark-infested waters,” says Stewart. Follow her on her mission to protect our sharks in this stunning documentary.
