Ron Taylor - Scs Condolences

Dateline 10-09-12

Ron Taylor died in hospital in Sydney on Sunday September 9th. Perhaps best known for his work on the original "Jaws", Ron was a real original and together with his wife Valerie spent decades filming sharks, and doing ground breaking shark work which challenged the stereotype long before it became as fashionable to work with sharks as it is today.

The Shark Conservation Society (SCS) felt priviledged when Ron and Valerie Taylor agreed to become Honorary Life Members of the Society.

The board of SCS, and all our volunteers and supporters send their deep condolences to Valerie and the Taylor family, and would like, at this sad time, to say thank you to Ron and Valerie for their enormous contributions to shark conservation.
