Burkhard Heetlage invited Michael Scholl to Germany in October 2005 to discuss a White Shark documentary project and to visit the Dierenpark in Emmen. The Dierenpark incorporates an aquarium with Lemon Sharks, a butterfly park and an amazing zoo. Although we are generally not supporting animal captivity, we have to admit that this is an most amazing zoo where animals have a lot of space, and barriers are mostly invisible or seemingly absent. Their Savannah park is probably the most amazing attraction: a huge Savannah style field at the center of the zoo with Rhinoceros, Giraffes, Buffalos, Antilopes, etc

The presentation given upon our visit about the White Sharks and our research activities, will lead to a very constructive collaboration in the future between the White Shark Trust and the Dierenpark Emmen.
