The Zoos and in particular the Australian Shark Attack File will remember Ron Taylor for his support of shark conservation over the last 40 years. He was a kind and generous man who had wealth of knowledge that he readily shared. He was a pioneer and a craftsman in the field of underwater film making in Australia.
He and his wife, Val, were extremely hospitable and shared a wealth of knowledge of shark behaviour. Ron’s passion for the conservation of sharks was inspirational to many over several decades. Ron will be missed by the many people he touched along the way and me personally.
