#tomorrow #sharksaturday the 16th only @oneoceandiving is giving away free @gopro footage tomorrow (saturday the 16th) only for anyone joining us on the pelagic shark snorkel. its so good to be home in warm water with my shark ohana (family.) growing up with these sharks its always so exciting for me coming back from somewhere to see who is swimming around, just like coming home to see your family or pet when you’ve been away for a long time.  the areas we take people out to swim with sharks, while we collect shark research data in regards to abundance and behavior, are consistent schooling areas so the sharks are always there but not all of them everyday, some seasons and times of the day they move to other aggregates or move offshore in the afternoons to forage.  the conditions are #beautiful this weekend and all this week, hope to sea you underwater soon ๐Ÿ˜‰ if you’re interested in learning about and swimming with sharks with me or one of the extremely well trained #marinebiologist & #sharksafetydivers just book online at oneoceandiving.com #oneocean #oneplanet all life is connected #helpsavesharks #savetheocean #sharkresearch #learnaboutsharks #swimwithsharks #meetashark #sharksinhawaii #hawaiishark #hawaiisharkdiving #oneoceandiving #northshore #oahu #hawaii #northshoreoahu #aloha #travel #bestthingtodoinhawaii #giveaway #relax photo by โค๏ธ๐Ÿฆˆ @juansharks โค๏ธ๐Ÿฆˆ

Press play...part 1 of my “if sharks could speak” if they knew what humans were doing to their populations...#speakupforsharks #helpsavesharks #savetheocean please repost photo i took years ago of a beautiful #greatwhiteshark i hope is still alive ๐Ÿ’™ #savingjawsmovie #savingjaws #oceanramsey #sharkspeaking #ifsharkscouldspeak #truth #reality #apexpredatornotmonster #oneocean #oneoceanglobalambassador #oneoceandiving ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿฆˆ๐Ÿ’™ my shark would say “i know i look scary but there’s a lot more to me than meets the eye and if you got to know more about me and you might even like me. my job is to keep the ocean healthy by preventing disease from spreading and keeping lower trophic level populations in balance.  i pick off the week wounded injured sick dead and dying. unfortunately my kind is being brought to the point of extinction we are being killed by humans at a rate of almost 100 million sharks every year, that averages out to 2 to 3 sharks being killed every single second, that is not a sustainable number.  we are mostly killed in very cruel ways with our fins being cut off while we are still alive just to satisfy the demand for shark fin soup a status symbol bowl of soup that is not even nutritious, its toxic, like our meat, its bad for your health to eat shark. we are also being killed just for sport for shark fishing or just because people think we are monsters or we are wastefully caught in nets. many people don’t care about us because they’re afraid of us because we are so misportrayed in the media and we can’t speak up for ourselves. less than 10 people a year die from a shark bite it’s very rare that we ever make a mistake despite the fact that humans dress up looking like seals and acting like injured marine animals. please help us before it’s too late before we are all gone because the rest of the ocean relies on us and all humans rely on the ocean for the air they breathe and i am a part of that life cycle. please help me, please repost this and help save the last of my kind”

Happy world ocean day! we only have one planet and its covered mostly by the the ocean which creates the environment as we know it.  all human life relies on the ocean for the oxygen to breathe, and the majority rely on it for their primary nutritional or income source. take care of the ocean that is slowly filling up with plastic by taking a “ocean day pledge” to stop using single use plastics. ๐ŸŒŠreuse everything you can ๐ŸŒŠreduce consumption by making conscious consumer choices
๐ŸŒŠknow the impacts of your choices and choose not to support destructive fishing practices
๐ŸŒŠleave the world a better place than you found it, daily by picking up debris, and in the long run by making conservation a lifestyle rather than a one time choice. ๐ŸŒŠget involved: speak to kids, donate time or talents to a local beach or park clean up, organize or support local or international campaigns. ๐ŸŒŠspeak up: make your voice count and be heard in politics, legislation, or even within your community. help educate others on the importance of respecting and protecting the natural world. ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ’กwhat are your ideas and suggestions? love the community involvement, comment below.
reef and beach clean up this saturday at kahe point-electric beach. give aways from @oneoceandesigns @clarklittle @keiko_conservation @naturezwayofficial @stillsane @xcelwetsuits @cressi1946 @albabotanica @ecoceanic @7seasrope @guayaki & more! want to help? #savetheocean email oneoceandiving@gmail.com

Not sure if he๐Ÿง was checking out my goosebumps โ„๏ธ or my @xcelwetsuits #whalesharkbikini like the #whaleshark, the #africanpenguin is sadly now an endangered species. over the last few weeks i’ve been #working #filming with @theapexexpedition exploring the southern coast of africa search for #greatwhitesharks and discussing potential reasons for their very apparent decline. in the entire time actively searching well known hot spots and exploring new ones we saw only two #greatwhiteshark the nets in the region and internationally, long line fishing, decline in the fish stocks, and even orca have all been suspect. with the sea lion populations booming it seems there is an apparent in-balance. we were also lucky enough to encountered pods of dolphin, right whales, cormorants, and even learned about elephants๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ. south africa is beautiful but their shark populations are reportedly the lowest ever from local operations. there are local companies like #marinedynamics doing what they can in #research and #conservation & people dedicated to building shelters to help the penguins out but the nets do k**l sharks & other marine life every year. last week another
humpback whale was entangled in australia but the government will not remove all the nets despite the uproar over another whale being caught. i cannot begin to wrap my head around why governments keep nets in place when they decimate “marine resources.” their argument is that they protect human life by killing sharks but sharks are rarely a cause of death (less than 10 fatalities worldwide) wouldn’t it be wiser to use funding to stopping drownings and d***k drivers who k**l far more people? ultimately nets are not even effective and there are better alternatives like modifying your behavior to consider light, your depth profile, proximity’s to shore and other animals and human fishing & dumping activity , your movements, and even things like painting giant eyes on the underside of your surfboard can help deter an adverse interactions. electronic deterrents are showing promise too. photos by @juansharks @emma_casagrande and whale net photos by unknown.

Excited for the release of @savingjawsmovie perception is everything. films like jaws, meg, 47meters down, the shallows are so destructive and counterproductive for shark conservation.
the reality is sharks are being killed by humans everyday not the other way around. the reality is #selfies k**l more people than sharks do and i don’t recommend combining the two, the perception of this photo is different from reality. this was a moment captures during the making of the film @savingjawsmovie and it’s not a selfie but rather a photo captured by my fiancé @juansharks as i pulled him to point to a #greatwhiteshark coming from behind him while he watched the one behind me that i had already seen coming. #realityvsperception working together as a team in #sharkresearch and #sharkconservation it’s critical to have each others back, if accidents were to happen it would be the sharks reputation that suffers too so we take safety very seriously and despite 15 & 20+ years of experience working actively with them we constantly check ourselves from becoming complacent out of respect for the fact that they are a #apexpredatornotmonster #helpsavesharks #savingjawsmovie #savingjaws #reality #comingsoon #savetheocean #oneoceandiving #oneocean #sharks #shark #stayandwander #dontcrackunderpressure #gobeyond #greatwhite #oceanramsey photo by #juansharks @juansharks ๐Ÿ˜˜โค๏ธ๐Ÿฆˆ๐Ÿ˜

Walking next to #elephants the last two days and getting to know this small herd of #rescue elephants as individuals has been amazing. we sleep overlooking where they sleep and watch and learn their movements and behaviors and i am absolutely geeking out on observing their social behavior. this is the matriarch of the herd, #sallytheelephant she’s 29 years old and the sweetest giant. the closest thing they remind me of is #whales . given i am unfamiliar with elephant behaviors i’ve been much more cautious around them than i am around whales who i feel immensely comfortable with. the rescue center has a highly trained staff who are happy to answer questions non stop โค๏ธeach field guide is sensitive to each individual elephant, it’s movements, and what happens when certain individuals approach other specific individuals. we spend the day out mingling right between them so we are adapting to the changing social dynamic which reminds me so much of what my team and i do with the shark research and interaction program back home in #hawaii @oneoceandiving i really appreciate the sensitivity they have to each individual and the dynamic of the group. the staff talk to the elephants when they need to (with their voice and body position) and factor in their eye sight and natural behavior. i am really appreciating learning the unique and subtle differences of such a large species. respecting the similarities between walking beside elephants and my human-shark research and interaction program swimming along side something large and powerful enough to instantly k**l you but intelligent enough not to so long as you adapt your behavior and treat them with the respect they deserve. sadly elephants are killed only for their tusks, the way sharks are killed only for their fins. help put a stop to slaughter by voting and petitioning against the ivory and shark fin trade wherever you are in the world. even if your country or state doesn’t have sharks or elephants they might be like the #stateofgeorgia that imports and exports. #bansharkfinsoup #banivory #saveelephants #helpsavesharks #sallyandco #kep #africa @theapexexpedition photo by my #โค๏ธ๐Ÿฆˆ๐Ÿ˜ @juansharks #oliphant

Visiting an #elephantrescue park in #africa pretty humbling to be able to walk alongside the small group at this #rescue and #research center @knysnatrunkcall entire elephants are killed for their tusks for the chinese markets similar to the way beautiful sharks are killed in mass only for 5% of their body as well for chinas demand for #sharkfinsoup speak up for #animals end the wasteful slaughter #speakupforanimals #speakupfornature #respectnature #respect #care #conserve #elephantsofinstagram #elephant๐Ÿ˜ #conservation #conservationist #lifestyle #love #couplegoals on assignment @theapexexpedition @oneoceanglobal #oneoceanoneplanetonechance

#southernrightwhales swimming right up to us this morning out filming for @theapexexpedition off the tip of #southafrica drone by @juansharks we took the icy plunge to photograph them in the area the local fishermen had taken us to scout for the #greatwhitesharks they have been seeing along this beautiful coast. if there were any great #whitesharks in the area i wouldn’t have seen them because the water clarity wasn’t even good enough to see the head of the whale from the tip of its tail but such a cool experience (in every aspect) regardless. #rightwhales we’re hunted easily because of their calm approachable demeanor. since being given protection in 1937 the southern right whale populations are recovering but the northern right whale populations are still classified as endangered. #savewhales #savetheocean #helpsavesharks #oneocean #apex180 #africa with @tanyavangraan @iamjuliawheeler #theapexexpedition #conservationist #conservation #science #marinebiology #explore #gobeyond #djimavicpro #dronewhale #ocean #beautiful the whales you’re listening to are #humpbackwhales i recorded with my cetacean #research #technology #hydrophone in #hawaii #afrikaans @oneoceanglobal @oneoceanresearch

Photo by @juansharks #juansharks #juanoliphant #nocage filming for @savingjawsmovie a project we’ve been working on for years to help combat destructive fear inducing “shark hate” media and movies like #meg #47metersdown #theshallows and the majority of the sensationalized and unfactual #sharkweek shows which generally only further scare people away from getting the truth about sharks and their current desperate plight to survive. the truth those media piece don’t share is that shark populations are being brought to the point of extinction and that is devastating for the ocean and all life on earth. all animals have a purpose and role in nature, especially apex predators. please help speak the truth and educate others about sharks before they are blinded with fear by c****y media that further hurts sharks by mis portraying them as monster. they are not puppies and i am not trying to encourage people to #swimwithgreatwhitesharks but i hope by opening more peoples eyes to the fact that sharks are a vital component to life and need our help. it’s humans that k**l sharks everyday not the other way around. #speakup #speakupforthosewithoutavoice #helpsavesharks #savetheocean #oneocean #savingjaws #savemeg #megmovieisbad #dontbiteintothefear #notsharkweek #respectsharks #shark #sharks not #sharkweek #speakupforsharks @keonishoots #oneoceandiving #oneoceanglobal #oneoceanglobalambassador โค๏ธ๐Ÿฆˆโค๏ธ photo ©๏ธ @juansharks ๐Ÿ˜˜
