About Hendrik Wuyts + Bonaire Vision Films & Photo International

The visionary mind behind Bonaire Vision Films & Photo International (previously known as Scuba Vision Films) is ‘Hendrik Wuyts’, a Belgian who came to the island of Bonaire in 1993. Scuba Vision Films was the result of decades of training in film, video and photography techniques including lessons at the world-renowned Antwerp School of the Arts. Hendrik continued his education through projects all over the world, including Cairns in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, Egypt, Malaysia, Sipadan and on many more locations.

His favorites, by far, included working with Max Hammer filming the Wrecks in Papua New Guinea, promotional and travel films in Sulawesi the Masai in Kenya or Peru, and working with the Smithsonia Institution filming at the island “Carrie Cow Bay” in Belize. His most exiting project has been the creation an award winning documentary: “ The survival of ethnic minority people of Vietnam and Laos”. His work as a director of photography on a travel series “EYE ON,…”, produced by European Media Support EMS in The Netherlands has earned him an EMS Golden Camera award for photography in LA and New York in 2002. Hendrik feels privileged to have seen, filmed and photographed an incredible amount of wildlife, whether it be topside or underwater. The footage and photo's he has accumulated is broad and diverse.

We call Scuba Vision Films today, 20 years later " Bonaire Vision Films & Photo International"

 A social battle between poverty, power and knowledge.

The importance to fight for eco-balance.

 
HOW WORLDS STRONGEST APEX PREDATOR STRUGGLE FOR SURVIVALmsflogo

A landmark agreement to protect shark species threatened with extinction was signed by Mister Johnson Toribiong the president of Palau in 2009.
This marks Palau as the first nation in the world to grand full protection status to shark populations.
On direct request by the President, The Micronesian Shark Foundation was granted full access to conduct research to analyze the effect of human influence on the shark population in Palauan territory.
In June 2012 the Micronesian Shark Foundation embarked on A scientific expedition it is the first of its kind to the Southern Boundaries to Palauan territory, this expedition is only possible because of the Bohemian Foundation donations.

Palau is an independent nation since 1994, the Republic of Palau was formerly a United Nations Trust Territory administered by the U.S. following WWII. Known today for its pristine environment and astounding biodiversity, Palau is considered to be among the world's top dive destinations.

Our most southern destination is named Hellen's reef it is a largely submerged coral reef and contains a small island in its northern section. Helen is a sandy, atoll island and therefore is flat and rises only a few feet above sea level.
As our excitement grows a rude awakening, it does not take long for the team to realize the devastating destruction of illegal fishing and long lining.

They were 4 Scientist, went out on a 2 week voyage, trying to deployment satellite tags and acoustic tags on sharks on the far (most) Southern corner of Palawan waters at Helens reef, and they failed miserably!DVDCover

They explored reefs in the pacific ocean and they could not find one adult shark of any species on any of these reefs, and these are pristine reefs, they are the places we hold up, these are places we say its all OK.
With half of the world's oceanic sharks at risk of extinction, 100 million sharks are killed each year around the world.
230 times they went out diving and manta towing covering an area of 400 Hectare(4 sq KM,1.5 sq mill) and they when fishing, and on all 3 counts they did not see any adult sharks, the data was consistent over all 3 sampling techniques.
Analyzing this data next to one of the rare healthy fish populated reefs confirms again the need to protect the broad scale of biodiversity, starting with the shark as the Apex predator.
