Professional Mermaid attempts to Save the Whales
So what better profession to get into than working as a model, actress and performer, who just happens to swim with whales, dolphins, stingrays and even sharks.
Hannah can hold her breath for up to two minutes and swim to depths of 45 feet, allowing her to move like a real mermaid, without the restraints of diving gear.
In 2007, Hannah swam in the sea in Taiji, Japan, with 30 surfers, celebrities and musicians, in an attempt to halt the ruthless slaughter of thousands of dolphins by local fishermen.
Two years later, in 2009, Hannah swam in her tail with 14ft Great White Sharks off Guadalupe Island, Mexico. ‘I thought if I was going to be a professional mermaid I’d have to face my fear of sharks,’ she admitted.
Filmmaker Rob Benavides is currently shooting a documentary about Hannah’s life, which will feature her work as a model, diver, and sea-life campaigner.
