Businessman, entrepreneur, humanitarian, conservationist and animal advocate – Richard Branson seems to do it all. Over the weekend, he literally swam with the sharks to protect the endangered tiger shark.

Branson wasn’t alone in the deep diving waters, but joined injured American war veterans. The group took their journey off the coast of the Bahamas, as part of Operation Blue Pride – a sea conservation group.

Jim Abernathy, founder of the group and shark expert, says he hopes to inspire others to protect the waters and is truly honored that the war heroes joined the dive.

“Our veterans, our American heroes who have sacrificed so much, know all too well how to get the job done when duty calls,” Abernathy said. “Whether they are standing up for our country’s freedom, or protecting our natural environment, these brave veterans are a shining example of people fighting for what’s important.”

It’s no surprise Branson took part, as he has promoted animal and environmental conservation for years, such as the protection of tigers. This is just another kind act added to his long list of accomplishments.
