Heading back to Cat Island tomorrow to play with these lovely fishies! Oceanic Whitetips are one of the most legendary sharks of the open ocean, and thereโ€™s nowhere better to see them than The Bahamas! #sharkweek #bahamas #catisland #sharkdiving #discoverychannel #scubadiving #shark #oceanicwhitetip

#200sharks ๐ŸŒŽ๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒ Happy Earth Day! Love the blue and the green ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™ ๐Ÿฆˆ ๐Ÿฆˆ ๐Ÿฆˆ Why 200 sharks? This project developed and evolved from learning about how sharks are being threatened to extinction. Every 60 seconds it is estimated that 200 sharks are lost due to man kind. I wanted to illustrate the beauty and diversity of this species, how they vary in shape, size, character and colour! I wanted to project my passion for them onto you, you don't need to love them, but please respect them ๐Ÿ‘Š๐ŸปโœŠ๐Ÿป . Awesome shot taken by @divephoto_emery ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿฆˆ Has been an awesome few weeks of filming for their documentary and can't wait to show you guys the finished piece ๐Ÿค™๐Ÿป . . . .

An #oceanicWhiteTip #Shark gliding near the surface and curiously investigating me and my camera. These sharks are the wolves of the deep, essential to the oceanic ecosystem. Over past decades these beautiful animals have suffered a population decrease of roughly 90% due to by-catch and illegal shark finning. This is a completely unacceptable number and we can do better, we NEED to do better. Itโ€™s been an amazing week free diving in the water with these animals, one I wonโ€™t soon forget and hope to do again and again. Huge thank you to my close friend @andy_mann and @zodiacwatches for this experience. So many of these missions in the water working with apex predators have been with Andy, a man who is so dedicatedly passionate and talented in this realm. Iโ€™ve had adventures all around the world with Andy, from big wall first ascent climbing, jungle mayhem, harsh deserts, African safaris, arctic sufferfests and underwater adventures, so grateful and looking forward to many more years of this to come! If you arenโ€™t familiar with @andy_mannโ€™s work check it out, you wonโ€™t be disappointed. Additionally, huge shout out to @seabacon, a total bad ass free-diver and dedicated conservationist, for his knowledge and passion of our oceans. Looking forward to more water adventures to come and the ongoing mission of spreading the word on the importance of oceanic preservation. @sea_legacy

Heading out for our first day of Oceanic Whitetips. Itโ€™s looking a bit windy here on Cat Island so we may have to work with inshore sharks today instead of Oceanics. Any day with sharks is a good day ๐Ÿ˜Š #oceanicwhitetip #sharkdiving #bigseas #bigfishexpeditions #catisland #offthebeatenpath #divethebahamas #divingwithsharks #sharkexperts #sharklife #longimanus #whitetips #jointheadventure

I attach a couple of lines to reflect upon from the best selling author of Sapiens and Homo Deus, Yuval Noah Harari - His words are wise and bold, Harari writes : โ€œSapiens is the deadliest species in the annals of biologyโ€- further he adds - โ€œ if things continue at present pace, it is likely that whales, sharks, tuna and dolphins will follow the diprotodons, ground sloths and mammoths to oblivion โ€œ The Oceanic white tip shark (Carcharhinus Longimanus) is a unique open seas predator, hence divers rarely come to see them. Still it is very difficult to find them since fishing industries have almost wiped them out for meat and fins, taken also regularly as bycatch on longline bait that is intended for other species. A safe bet would be that the next generation will never be able to see one but on TV or the web. However, there is always hope, the sea recovers pretty fast if we give it a break. #uwphotography #oceanicwhitetip #ocean #nature #wildlife #wildlifephotography #scubadiving #oceanlove #blueplanet #wildlife #oceanlife #reef #_scuba_diving_ #discoverocean @scubadivingmag #underwater #just4diver #divepix #sapiens #travel #conservation @sharksdaily #longimanus @scuba.snapshots @underwater_world_ @oneoceanresearch #wildlifeplanet #shark @_scuba_diving @discoverocean #canon_photos #YourShotPhotographer @ocean @water_of_our_world #naturephotography #blueplanet2 #freediving #snorkel #redsea @scubadivingmag @ocean @scubaquality @scuba.snapshots @underwater_world_ @oneoceanresearch @ocean @water_of_our_world @aquaticadigital @oceana @sportdiver @yuvalnoahharari

My shark babies close up ๐Ÿ’™ Let's talk about how crazy cool sharks are?!? One of the things I am adoring about my #200sharks project is observing and illustrating how diverse this species is! From the Whaleshark shark ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿฆˆ to the Angel Shark ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿฆˆ they come in so many different sizes, colours, shapes and personalities! I am also enjoying widening my Shark and ocean Knowledge and can't wait to continue the project in #gilitrawangan @mantadivegilit โœจ๐Ÿฆˆ I am also going to the scanners tomorrow to scan in 9 sharks! I have hit 18/200 and only got the Wobbegong and Saw Shark to get to 20 (I have not forgotten about them!) 9 SHARKS BEING RELEASED NEXT WEEK ๐Ÿ˜ What's your favourite shark and why? . . . . . #watercolour #whaleshark #angelshark #whitetipreefshark #oceanicwhitetip #whiteshark #illustration #oceanart #ocean #oceanlove #shark #sharkart #sharkgirl #art #environmentalart #scientificillustration #scuba #saveourseas #marinebiology #artivism #savesharks #artforchange #scubadiving #artivism #conservation #painting #aqualife #aquarelle #aquarellepainting

Want to help contribute to research on a threatened species? We are putting the call out for any photographs of oceanic whitetip sharks from Hawai'i Island. Oceanic whitetip sharks were historically one of the most abundant predator species in tropical waters, but have undergone drastic declines over the past several decades. In response to these declines, they have been listed as โ€œthreatenedโ€ under the Endangered Species Act. In addition to our ongoing tagging study off the Kona coast, we are creating a database of past and current images of oceanic whitetip sharks around Hawaii. Photographic identification methods using fin markings, coloration and scarring will be used to establish baseline information of oceanic whitetip shark demographics in this region. Your contributions will be acknowledged online and in reports and permission will be asked for any other use. Mahalo! #shark #oceanicwhitetip #conservation #endangeredspecies #uwphotography

Okay guys, I think itโ€™s about time to show you a little more of what Iโ€™ve been doing over the past 2 weeks. โ€ข 2 days ago I woke up to this outside my window. 5 minutes later turquoise dominated the colours of the lagoon and schools of sharks๐Ÿฆˆ lay by the beach as if to greet us on the beginning of our journey. We had been out on sea โ›ต๏ธ for close to 6 days and this was the gold at the end of the rainbow. โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€” WELCOME to โ€œHalalangaโ€ ๐ŸŒดand welcome to my daily post of our shark research and island life over the next month we are here. #watchthisspace =========================== #sharkspacific #sharkresearch #sharkisland #pacific #cookislands #tongareva #penryhn #sharks #rays #mantarays #eaglerays #oceanicwhitetip

When someone says there are tons of SHARKS in the water your first response is โ€œdonโ€™t go inโ€..right? . Well that was my reaction for sure! However, I was quickly convinced I should grab my fins, mask, hold my breath and hope for the best! . In the end it was my most memorable dive to date. I encountered 6 adult sharks of 3 different species including oceanic white tip and grey sharks, eagle rays, moral eels and tons of amazing fish! I couldnโ€™t be happier that I took the risk and jumped on in, despite my fears. I am also more than happy that I lived to tell the tale! ๐Ÿฆˆ . . . #sharks #shark #surf #surfergirl #snorkel #oceanicwhitetip #sharksarefriends #risktaker #yolo #mermaid #mermaidsarereal #thegirlinthewateryoga #theoceaniscalling #freedive #maldives #islandlife #tropical #reef #underwater #natureisamazing #theoceanishome #charterboat #surftrip #worldclasssurfmaldives @worldclass.surftrips @carpediemmaldives

So with comments on my last post and inbox filling I'm going to briefly cover the main topics people asked about to clear a few bits up. Shark health- I personally believe this shark survived. Most sharks endure a beating whilst mating and heal incredibly well so the injuries themselves (I hope) won't be a problem. Stress in sharks IS a big killer though but as this shark experienced a short period (of albeit hardcore) stress I believe it survived. Ecotourism- 'Activities that generate money through tourists' e.g #cagediving can actually help contribute towards shark protection 100%. How? Money tourists bring to communities (hotel stays, restaurants, dive operators..) encourage countries to keep their #sharks alive for the long haul financial gains rather than a single yield of a dead #shark! I must emphasise however a lot of the bucketlist sharks such as #greatwhite #hammerhead & #oceanicwhitetip are all migratory so the benefit (although a fantastic one) of a shark sanctuary is short lived. Dive operators- I should reiterate there are SOME good operators. Again its not my thing but if it's yours do your homework, thoroughly! I've heard tourist boats moaning about shark tags spoiling their imagery so they may claim they're doing research but, show me their published facts? or are they really just using science as an excuse to line their pockets with cash? Finally yes attending these trips can ignite passion and advocacy but I'm guessing if you're considering a trip you've already been converted into a shark lover not killer? I mean how many people like to see/dive with sharks but also kill and eat them? #JustSaying Research- In my opinion the only real boats conducting beneficial research are those visiting these sharks with that single goal in mind. Many boats with tourists on board conduct basic data so they can say they're helping. Again, do your homework if you fancy a trip, and be strong in what YOU want to support with your cash, oh and be honest with why you're going? Is it really for them or for you? and it's ok if its for you but just admit that. If you want to help them, change your diet it's far cheaper and

Probably my favorite shark species! The oceanic white tip is one of the most curious and cunning sharks in my experience. Not only are they big, but when in groups they seem to behave like wolves. Roaming in packs looking for the weakest link. And while you watch the ones near the surface youโ€™ll get surprised by one coming up from the depths. Here my good mate @andy_mann dances around this big one in the Bahamas. . . . . . #oceanicwhitetip #sharks #uwpic #underwaterpic #underwaterphotography #freedive #freediving #scubadiving #scubadive #discoversharks @discoverocean @discoversharks @oceana @ocean_magazine @fathomlesslife @sharksdaily @sharkangels @scubapro @zealoptics @hydroflask

#day11 of #meetyourphotographer and today's subject is a #factaboutme So... My fact is that I am a passionate, qualified advanced level scuba diver! And am just a little bit obsessed with #sharks I have been fortunate enough to dive in some amazing places including the #greatbarrierreef #cuba #tobago #redsea #margarita #cyprus and have been thrilled to come face to fin with such beautiful animals as #oceanicwhitetip #bullsharks #reefsharks #threshershark ... In this image taken by me on the Great Barrier Reef you can see #anemonefish #greenturtle #reefshark and a very rare sighting of the 'diving Mancunian'...
