Tiger sharks are my favorite shark. they are the fifth largest shark (behind the whale shark, basking shark, megamouth shark, and white shark). tiger sharks travel super long distances for mating and pupping. some people are scared of tiger sharks because they are known to eat "everything". to me they look cute rather with their big eyes and blunt snout. personally i love the shape of their teeth and their iconic stripy pattern.

I was on the look out for sharks. this lovely spotted eagle ray (aetobatus narinari) totally got me by surprise. not the best footage, murkey and against the light. the good things happen when you least expect it. especially when it comes to nature. #alwaysbeready β–ͺ

Beautiful and amazing breach!!! #repost @marine_biologist._.myjob with @get_repost

ever wondered why whales breach? scientists aren't quite sure if it's to get rid of parasites or just for fun.

it was the most surreal and incredible experience last week in tonga, being metres from this humpack whale when it breached and landed next to me. such an amazing adrenaline rush!

this is a image i captured during this guadalupe expedition, however the words below are from fellow shark conservationist and #sharkaddict @chriscameron.sa. that joined us on this adventure. at first glance the image can be extremely intimidating. i was drawn to the image for all of the same reasons the public would be...the size, the teeth, the light cutting through the water showcasing its powerful “jaws”, but the most incredible thing about spending time in the water with these animals is observing first hand the depth of intelligence showcased during the hunt. im so thankful for @oceanramsey ‘s extensive knowledge she passed along shinning new light into the social behaviors exhibited during the trip. the opportunity to observe great whites in the wild is intensified by the knowledge we have to enrich the experience. #apexpredatornotmonster #cagethefear #shark #conservationist #savingjaws #savingjawsmovie @savingjawsmovie photo by #juanoliphant using @cressi1946 @aquatech_imagingsolutions @xcelwetsuits @guayaki @north_sails #gobeyond #savetheocean and #sharks

[shannon moorhead takeover] despite being born and raised in a small suburb of chicago, illinois, the ocean has always been a huge part of my life. i had always been fascinated by animals and nature, but my wonder grew when i was first introduced to the ocean on family trips to the out islands of the bahamas. i still remember putting on my mask and snorkel and slipping under the surface of the water for the first time. i was awestruck by the marine life; after each dive i would reference my identification book to record every animal i had seen (a tradition i still keep). after some particularly exciting dives, where i encountered a spotted eagle ray and a lemon shark, i became especially interested in elasmobranchs. as i grew older, my passion grew stronger, and i decided to attend to the university of miami to study marine science and biology. while there, i volunteered with the coastal marine education and research academy, where i had my first opportunity to assist with elasmobranch research- at the time i thought it may be the only chance i would ever get to work with sharks and rays! the following semester, @umiamirsmas’s dr. peter glynn gave me the incredible opportunity to conduct my own scientific research, focusing on the predator-prey dynamics of benthic ctenophores. soon after, i applied to work for src. thankfully i was accepted twice- first as an undergraduate intern and again to continue my work as a master’s student!

A lot of media attention is on the effect of plastic pollution has on large marine organisms, such as turtles, whales, dolphins etc… however, a study in 2015 highlighted the impacts on scleractinian coral (hard coral). hall et al., (2015) report that scleractinian coral’s on the great barrier reef actually ingest the plastic we put into the ocean. this occurs as they mistake microplastic (<5mm) for prey (often plankton). as a result, microplastic is found wrapped around tissue in their guts and therefore possibly impacting their health. a new study has also reported that scleractinian corals ingest numerous types of plastic, and that the exact impacts of such must be examined (allen et al., 2017). it is amazing how widespread plastic pollution is now that it is even ending up inside of coral, the problem really is bigger than what it appears to be. -
come join us on our monthly beach cleanups (stay tuned for details @oneoceanconservation!) & remember to try and reduce your plastic footprint by saying no to single use! -

I'm currently at the "end of the world" in ushuaia waiting to board the kapitan khlebnikov in a few days. this ice breaker will take us to a remote area of antarctica, in an effort to see the emperor penguin colony off snow hill, the same colony filmed for the movie march of the penguins.
this picture showcases the beautiful mountains of ushuaia and our hotel, the scenery here is just stunning!

The small southern resident orca population is at a dangerous risk of disappearing forever, heavily due to starvation caused by their lack of food, the chinook salmon, who are also at a risk of disappearing. however, the orca task force, federal agencies, and government leaders are claiming that this isn’t the biggest issue facing the orcas, despite studies showing that breaching the dams will give the orca and salmon their best chance! public pressure is the only force that is actively trying to get the 4 snake river dams in the salish sea breached, so the chinook salmon can repopulate to a much more sustainable number & so the orcas can finally have enough food to reproduce and thrive. we can’t stop speaking up for these animals. please keep calling, keep writing, keep sending e-messages. all info you need is over at @pnwprotectors. let the orca task force, federal agencies, and political leaders know we want and need them to breach the dams! #repost beautiful artwork by the insanely talented @styngvi. please check out his other work, too! ・・・
the southern resident orcas are disappearing. there are only about 70 individuals left in the wild and new calves haven't been born in the last 3 years. the cause is the near disappearance of the chinook, or king salmon, which is the orcas’ main food source. due to overfishing and stream pollution of humans this salmon is now very difficult to come by.
β–ͺ️
the researchers say inbreeding, increased oil tanker traffic, water contamination from farm and factory runoff could also be to blame. the decision has been made to stop whale watching of the remaining srkw population in order to try to decrease the pollution going into the water but the fact remains that there is no fish to be found.
β–ͺ️
without this fish stock these resident orcas will not survive in the wild but their population might rebound if chinooks are restored in the columbia river basin. if you want to let your voice be heard about this matter you can sign the petition in my bio!

Shark eyes are extremely unique and perfectly adapted to their environments. similar to our own eye structure, rods in the retinas allow the shark to see light and shadows while the cones in the retinas allow the shark to detect colors. however, unlike humans, shark eyes have a tapetum lucidum (mirrored crystals behind the retinas). this structure gives sharks the gift detecting light that was missed by the rods and the ability to see even in murky or dark water (lindsay and collin 2007). shark eye size and shape is different among the shark species. in the pelagic (0-200m below surface) and upper mesopelagic (200-1000m) sharks are equipped with the largest eyes because they live in an environment with the most available light. while feeding, another adaptation is out on display. to protect their eyes, some sharks have a nictating membrane that will cover the eye. sharks without the nictating membrane, like the great white, will roll their pupil back into their head to protect the eye and gives the eye a black appearance. (land, m.f. 2002). the eye is just one example of the amazing adaptations sharks have developed to survive for millions of years. their whole body is designed specifically for the species and environment they live in and should be seen as beautiful pieces that make the whole puzzle of the ‘shark’ come together.
