Awesome post by the lovely  @oceanic.grace πŸ’™ not only is it important to know and share how essential sharks are for a healthy ocean, but that knowledge needs to go hand in hand with educating the public on easy ways they can help aid in their protection. keep reading 😌
・・・
did you know sharks can sense the heart beat of their prey up to 100 meters away? the ampullae of lorenzini is a specialized sensory o***n that allows them to detect electrical potentials generated by muscle contractions. —
sad statistic but about 100 million sharks are killed each year! at this rate the populations cannot sustain themselves and are in danger of disappearing🦈 ✨ a few simple ways you can help right now as a consumer: •1) ladies look in your cosmetics, squalene comes from shark and is secretly hidden in many items. •2) read the ingredients of your dog’s food. shark is not healthy for us or our fur friends, but big companies hide it is as flake, huss, rock salmon, and dogfish to name a few. • 3) support sustainable fisheries (sharks are often caught as bycatch) •4) don’t eat shark fin soup or support restaurants that serve it (it is a tasteless and frankly unhealthy dish that only shows status) —
to sum it up sharks are pretty important and are being exploited to the point of endangering their species. so let’s join together and change that βœ¨πŸ¦ˆπŸ’™

Nosso gigante lindo e pacífico! πŸ’™πŸ¦ˆπŸ³β €
β €
o tubarão baleia (rhincodon typus) é o maior peixe do planeta, chegando a atingir 12m de comprimento. porém seu tamanho é proporcional a sua docilidade e tranquilidade. se alimenta por filtragem de plânctons e pequenos peixesβ €
β €
o tubarão-baleia distribui-se pelos grandes oceanos, habitando regiões tropicais e temperadas, com exceção do mar mediterrâneo. este peixe pode ser encontrado em águas rasas e profundas, especialmente na linha de costa de países como o méxico, austrália e filipinas (tem preferência por águas mais quentes). geralmente solitário, o tubarão-baleia pode ser avistado em grupos de até 100 indivíduos nas áreas de alimentação (locais com grandes concentrações de plâncton). durante a primavera, estes animais realizam longas migrações para a costa da austrália com fins reprodutivos e alimentares, podendo deslocar-se também em resposta às condições ambientais. (infoescola)β €
β €
a experiência de nadar com esses gigantes é mágica, e é preciso respeitá-los durante esses encontros. precisamos deles vivos, saudáveis e felizes!β €

‘thanks to the protection granted by the marine reserve, the galapagos green sea turtle population is one of the few worldwide that is on the rise. they are so happy and well fed, that they mostly do not mind the presence of us humans and with them results in unforgettable close encounters. we do need more marine protected areas, the most effective way to bring back our overfished to former glory!’

This is riley the tiger shark coming to check me out after saying hi to @forrest.in.focus forrest has been with @oneoceandiving for a long time as a captain, and now as an official shark safety divemaster and research assistant, which in not an easy thing to become as @oceanramsey and i are very serious about safety and shark behavior and extremely selective with who we take in as the training is very extensive and in most cases takes around a year or more. i still remember my 1st time diving with forest in 2013 when curly girl the tiger shark came straight to him, originally when he started training with ocean and i it was in preparation for being outside the cage with great white sharks. his professionally trained freedive skills and work as a professional photographer also help him to excel in his position in the water and @oneoceandiving consider yourself lucky if you get to have forrest as your guide when you join us out with @oneoceandiving because he’s got great luck with tiger sharks and whale sharks so far! literally had both at the same time a couple weeks ago, i’ve never heard of that before. #helpsavesharks #savetheocean #oneocean #teamoneocean #teamoneocean #apexpredatornotmonster

Tiger sharks (galeocerdo cuvier) are a species of shark that are found circumglobally in most tropical, and subtropical waters. they are one of the largest sharks in our oceans and have a wide ranging diet starting from turtles, sharks, seals and ending, but not limited to, crabs and even human garbage (iucn –simpfendorfer, 2009). one of the best ways to tell a tiger shark apart from other sharks is by their beautiful stripes that run perpendicular to the length of their bodies. scientists have concluded that the stripes help camouflage them when they are hunting for prey by mimicking the sun rays that dance through the water (heithaus, 2002). tiger stripes are more pronounced when they are juveniles, most of which come straight out of the w**b with bright contrasting stripes that are almost black, and then as they age their stripes fade and become harder to distinguish (rathbun, 1984). the tiger stripes are a beautiful rendition of the 400+ million years of evolution that they have gone through. these stripes and should be protected at all costs, because after all... an ocean without sharks is not a viable ocean and without a viable ocean there is no viable planet.

this image of one of the most prolific female white sharks in guadalupe, lucy, was photographed courtesy of our co-founder at one ocean diving @oneoceandiving and water inspired conservation @waterinspired, shark behaviour specialist, conservation photojournalist and underwater filmmaker, juan oliphant @juansharks - to say lucy is a large great white might be a understatement. i got this photo of her yawning at the surface. πŸ˜‰#massive #shark #apexpredatornotmonster #coexist #love #lucy photo using @aquatech_imagingsolutions @canonusa #photosforacuase #helpsavesharks
for over a decade scientists have been monitoring hundreds of great white sharks congregating in a remote spot deep in the pacific. great white sharks are typically solitary creatures, so researchers were a bit surprised to realize just how many of them travel to the same spot halfway between hawaii and mexico’s baja california. and yes, it’s true that the strange behavioral patterns the sharks exhibit once they get there—diving 1,000 feet toward the ocean floor and back up again, as often as every 10 minutes, for example—have never been previously recorded in any study of great white shark migration. hundreds of great white sharks have been mysteriously drawn to the same new mexico-sized patch of the pacific every spring for at least the last 10 years, like it’s some kind of shark burning man event. they know that from november to january, california’s great white shark population swims the coastal waters snacking on sea lions and elephant seals. that makes sense! but what defies logic is that the sharks then head for open water, and that hundreds of them go specifically to this shark meeting point where they remain through spring before returning to california. scientists have even given the spot a nickname: the “great white café.” a team from the monterey bay aquarium and stanford university, led by stanford marine biologist barbara block, followed a group of satellite-tagged sharks out to the great white café to try to figure out what’s going on.

#repost from @marine_biologist._.myjob with @regram.app ... imagine if we could put a stop all plastic pollution and litter entering the ocean from today, how long would it take for our oceans to be ‘clean’ again?
estimates from the noaa show that the decomposition rate for plastic bottles is 450 years, plastic bags ~ 20 years, styrofoam cups 50 years, plastic drink holders 400 years, cigarette butts up to 5 years and fishing lines 600 years!
therefore, even if we could stop all the debris from entering the world’s oceans today, we are likely to still see the remains of plastic bottles until 2468! this is why we need to take action today, not wait a few years until we really see the consequences of our actions. every small action you do like taking your own coffee cup, using a metal straw or not using plastic bags really will help! remember to refuse, reduce, reuse and recycle πŸ πŸŒΏπŸ’™β™» post by: @em.hanney

How whales brunch πŸ˜‚πŸ‹
bubble net feeding is a unique feeding technique employed by humpback whales, in which a group of whales swim in a shrinking circle blowing bubbles below a school of fish. this shrinking column of bubbles surrounds the school of fish forcing them upward. the whales spontaneously swim upward through the bubble net, mouths wide open, catching thousands of fish in one gulp.

Sometimes you are in the right place at the right time, and even have your lens pointing in the right direction. i was very lucky to capture this skua taking a rockhopper penguins chick right from it's mom. you can see the colony is not very happy about this, the emotion is apparent.

Winter in hawaii brings quite a few beautiful spectacles, one of them being whale season! we get a multitude of questions from incoming tourists wondering if they will be able to dive with whales while out on our pelagic tours, and while it’s an absolute blessing when they come through our dive sites, it’s not something we purposely seek out. these whales are highly protected here in hawaii, and for good reasons; as much as we adore them, we must respect them moreover. read more below for an amazing caption on whales and the effect of human impact: πŸ‹

photograph by @cristinamittermeier // a new study has proved that humpback, fin, and blue whales experience a physical stress response to human activity. this was determined by the whales' earwax; when examined, it showed higher levels of cortisol - a hormone that mammals produce at a time of stress - while the global whaling industry was at its peak. humpback, fin, and blue whales were among the most hunted species in the 20th century when the whaling industry bloomed. the 1930s alone saw approximately 50,000 whales from those three species slaughtered. but even though commercial whaling is now illegal, it's still a threat and a sad reality for these whales. this year, iceland slaughtered 142 endangered fin whales, plus two rare blue-fin whale hybrids. these majestic cetaceans are incredibly intelligent creatures, and we're constantly discovering new things about how their brains work. in 2019, we'll continue our work to #stopthehunt and support marine protected areas to protect them in future. if you'd like to join us in #turningthetide for our oceans, visit the link in our bio.

Hey shark lovers, let’s change some mindsets this winter! so, as many of you know, the large swells are kickin up and northshore is becoming packed with surfers... and i’m not sure about you, but we know quite a few surfers that remain quite a bit weary of our favorite shark friends. well we want to help them feel more comfortable in this beautiful hawaiian ocean. so tag all the surfers you know, on oahu or not, tag em all! tell them about what we do and how education including practical information to reduce adverse interactions and seeing the true nature of sharks first hand can make all of the difference! we want to get as many of you out with us this winter as possible! let’s #coexist 🦈
