Mermaid Kat loves nature and the creatures sharing this wonderful planet with us. As an environmentalist Kat uses her mermaid personality to educate the public about the beauty of the oceans and hopes that so more people will start to protect them.
See the world through the eyes of a mermaid and help to protect it before it’s too late.
Ever since Mermaid Kat was a little girl she cared for nature, the environment and animals. Even that her parents had forbidden Kat to go into the forest alone, she went in there almost every day anyway. She climbed trees, build gang-huts and searched for injured animals that would need her help. Kat dreamed about a life like a native Indian in harmony with nature. In a young age she has already seen and realized that humans were on the best way to destroy our beautiful planet. Tons of garbage in the woods and countless trees that were cut down inspired her to write and sing songs about a better world.
Kat was always surrounded by animals and pets that she found outside and fed up. She built up a connection with them and enjoyed their company more than the company of most humans. Kat realized how terrible animals get treated and killed at meat farms. This was against her ethical believes. Therefore she decided to become a vegetarian.
When Kat got older she started to be more active as an environmentalist. She got involved in bigger projects to safe animals and our environment. In 2006 she was one of the founders of the German shark saving organization “SharkChance”.
After Kat turned into a mermaid she started using her mermaid personality to educate people about the importance and problems of our oceans. To educate people about the slaughter of thousands of dolphins yearly, during the selection process for international marine parks, the environmentalist swam with wild dolphins in the Red Sea. Visiting dolphins in captivity rips families apart, causes pain, illness and even suicide of these beautiful water mammals. Visiting dolphins in captivity also supports the slaughter of about 20.000 dolphins in Japan every year. If you want to see dolphins, visit them in their natural habitats. For more information watch the documentary “The Cove”.
Mermaid Kat swam in the shark tank of “Underwater World Pattaya” in Thailand to support the Dive Tribe campaign “Swim for Sharks”. The environmentalist also performed in the shark tank of “Aquaria” in Kuala Lumpur to support the anti shark finning campaign “Save our Fins”. In April 2014 Kat organized a Project AWARE Finathon where she and the finalists of the “Miss Scuba UK” Pageant swam in mermaid tails and raised money to protect sharks. To stop people from eating shark fin soup, which causes the brutal slaughter of about 100 Million sharks yearly, Mermaid Kat supported the Ocean Geographic’s campaign “Facing Grace”. For this project Mermaid Kat swam with wild hammerhead sharks and even tiger sharks. She wanted to demonstrate that sharks are wonderful creatures and no man-eating monsters as Hollywood promotes them. Mermaid Kat was the first person in the world who swam with hammerhead and tiger sharks while wearing a mermaid tail and without any seeing devices such as a mask or contact lenses.
To create awareness about the plastic patch that has twice the size of Texas in the Pacific Ocean, Mermaid Kat organized and supported countless events and campaigns such as “Phuket Dives Against Debris” in Thailand and “Cleaning Day with Mermaids and Divers” in the Philippines. The environmentalist supported an exchange event in Germany where people got a reusable carry bag in return of a plastic bag, to make people more conscience about the use of single use plastics.
Every single person can turn into an environmentalist easily. Please help to save this wonderful world we live in. Help with little things such as living after the principal “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle”. Avoid single use plastics such as plastic bags and take away cups. Reuse the plastics you can’t avoid as often as possible and then recycle them properly. Don’t leave cigarette butts at the beach or anywhere else where they can get into the environment. Reduce your consume of fish and educate yourself to make sure the fish you eat is not threatened by extinction and caught in a way that changes the stability of our fragile seas. Save water and electricity and share this information with as many others as possible.
