#Repost from @sharkneverdie. 😱 Finding a Great White Shark in a ocean pool... just another day in Australia 🏖🦈 -- If you haven't already heard the news, a juvenile great white beached itself on Manly Beach in Sydney today, bypassing shark-nets and proving the nets do little to prevent sharks from getting close to swimmers. The GWS was moved to a local rock pool by the ocean and is currently being monitored by marine biologists. The concerning factor is that sharks rarely beach themselves but when they do, there is usually an underlying issue or illness. We hope this little fella makes it back to the sea - we will keep you updated 🙏🏼 -- Video by @the_wandering_feet 💙 💞 🔴👕 If you want t-shirts or hoodie , please check the link in our bio (profile)➡ @sharkneverdie 🎁 Perfect gift for your family members and friends Thank you ! 💟💟💟 * Via: @oceanskeepers #shark #sharks #sharktank #whaleshark #sharkattack #greatwhite #sharknado #sharkbait #greatwhiteshark #sharktooth #sharkie #sharkfishing #savesharks #sharky #portlincoln #sharkteeth #sharkdiving #sharklife #sharkbite #sharkies #sharkeez #sharksquad #sharkcity #sharkdive #sharkconservation #cagediving #sharkcage #calypsostarcharters

Working on Catalina Island and night snorkeling often exposed me to what I believe to be the cutest shark of them all: the horn shark, or heterodontis francisci! As a nocturnal shark, they are observed to begin swimming and feeding around dusk, and hide away to sleep around dawn (Nelson & Johnson, 1970). They are considered benthic, meaning they are bottom feeders, staying low to the sandy bottom and ocean floor. Observing their jaw plates and little teeth indicated that, as juveniles, these sharks are suction feeders, and prefer softer prey (Summers, Ketchan & Rowe, 2004). Adult horn sharks primarily feed on molluscs, octopus, squid, worms, snails and even sea urchins. Cracking the shells of their prey takes some force, and horn sharks have the highest bite force relative to any size of shark! During breeding season, female horn sharks lay two eggs about every two weeks in the sandy bottom, laying up to 24 eggs in a single season! Their eggs look like brown drill bits, with grooves on the side to help eggs nestle into rocky reef and algae to be protected until the pup hatches. At 6 to 7 inches in length, horn shark pups are the cutest little fish to spot on a night snorkel! To make themselves appear larger, they are known to rise up on their pectoral fins. Often times, they ‘crawl’ (with their pectoral fins) across the sandy bottom, rather than swimming.You may be wondering: why are they called horn sharks? Right in front of their two dorsal fins, they have tiny spikes that look almost like rose thorns. As they do not grow very large, these are the primary defense mechanism of a horn shark. Imagine biting really hard onto a tortilla chip, and the point stabs the roof of your mouth. This is essentially how a horn shark escapes the mouth of its’ prey. Angel sharks have been seen swallowing horn sharks and seconds later, spitting it back out! Threats to horn sharks include human bycatch & human presence; lower numbers have been observed in popular diving sites in Southern California (sharksider.com). They may be small, but these sharks are a vital part of the ecosystems in California’s nutrient-rich, colder waters. #SaveSharks Post and photo by @linacristina

(Part 2 of 2) Have you ever wondered why sharks and dolphins have tails oriented in different directions? Many people put dolphins and sharks in the same category as large marine animals with similar body shapes, so why wouldn't their tails be the same? It turns out there are correlations between the function of the tail and its position. In a shark, the caudal fin is vertical, but in a dolphin the tail is horizontal. Like all adaptations, the difference could be for different hunting and survival styles of the animal. It has been shown that at a certain speed, dolphins conserve energy by leaping out of the water, as seen off the side of many boats when the dolphins are around. Their tail would therefore be more useful in propelling them out of the water for vertical lift. The horizontal orientation of the dolphin tail could make it easier to move vertically through the wate rand in turn out of the water. This could be the same for a shark, where the vertical orientation of the tail makes it easier for them to swim horizontally through the water. While a shark also has the capability to breach, it requires a lot of speed, energy, and only one chance to stun their prey, instead of the steady leaps that dolphins make (Au. et. al. 1980). A shark's caudal fin also seems to be more advantageous for quick and agile turns, as a dolphin usually orients itself sideways in turning so the fin is on the same plane of a sharks. The difference of fin may also stem from the divergent evolutionary path of the shark and the dolphin, one being a cartilaginous fish and one being a marine mammal. While there are many possible reasons that the tail of a shark and dolphin are oriented differently, the tail of each species is uniquely developed to help them fulfill their niche in the environment.

(Part 1 of 2) Time for a sharks tale about a sharks tail! The tail of a shark, otherwise known as the caudal fin, is heterocercal. This is a structure where the two lobes of the tail are different lengths, with the upper lobe being longer than the lower lobe. The backbone of the shark runs into the upper lobe, which helps give the tail strength, stability, and support for high speeds. ( Crow. et. al, 2002) The orientation of the heterocercal tail provides the shark with thrust right through its center of gravity. By directing the thrust through the center of gravity of the shark, it has a wider range that the thrust can be oriented in, along with an equal balance of forces on the tail. (Thompson, 2016) While the tail of a shark provides thrust, the difference between lobe sizes and shape of the tail determines how much. In a shark that has lobes near the same size, like the mako, the shark has a greater capacity for power and speed. In others species, like the thresher shark, where the upper lobe is a great deal larger than the lower lobe, the tails main function is not for power and speed, but for stunning its prey. In this way, the caudal fin is another aspect of the shark that is differentiated by function. The caudal fin is as unique to the shark as the shark is itself. It is amazing how variations of something as simple as their tail can make such a large impact on the hunting style and survival skills of the shark.

Great info @Regrann from @finfreesydney - The consequences following shark population decline are scarier than any horror movie. We can change this together. Next time someone talks about how frightening sharks are, how scared they are of being bitten, how awful or monstrous they are - politely and calmly help them understand. Help replace their fear with understanding. Explain how important they are to the health of the oceans; how the bites are often a case of mistaken identity; how you’re more likely dying by stepping into a car each day; how 100 million of them are killed each year; and finally, that an ocean without them is the real nightmare. . . . . #Shark #Sharks #Ocean #Fish #ProtectWhatYouLove #NoFinsNoFuture #FinFree #FinFreeSydney #FinFreeMelbourne #FinFreeBrisbane #Environment #Protect #Conservation #Photography #Sydney #Australia #HealthyOceansNeedSharks #LoveSharks #SaveSharks #SharkSavers #Beautiful #Love #Travel #RobStewart #Sharkwater #Extinction #GlobalSharkCrisis

Hammerhead sharks (Sphyrnidae) have a one of a kind head where orbital and olfactory regions are laterally expanded.This species use this expansion for hydrodynamic purposes (Nakaya, 1995). The scalloped hammerhead (Sphyrna lewini) have a broad convex head with prominent median indention and two lesser indentations on either side (Randall, 2011). This unique head shape is also used for tracking prey (Powell, 2010). The level of sensitivity in the snout of this shark species is very high. They can track prey by scent, electroreception, hearing, vision and taste. Scalloped hammerheads are endangered and need our help, You can help by spreading awareness, donating to organizations, and signing petitions. Come out with us to experience sharks first hand and see how amazing these creatures are!

Little is known about the long-term movement patterns of Tiger sharks. This species is believed to be wide-ranging, and unpredictable (Meyer, C. G. et al 2009). Their visitation to certain areas may be spread out by absences of weeks, months or years (Meyer, C. G. et al 2009). This pattern of unpredictability may be an ideal foraging strategy for catching prey because it keeps the element of surprise alive. Despite the fluctuating movement of tiger sharks scientists believe that they use "cognitive maps" to move between foraging sites (Meyer, C.G et al 2010). Tiger sharks are able to move and navigate dynamically between expansive ranges and open ocean (Holland, K.N. et al 1999). 📸 by @juansharks of @oceanramsey sharing the water with a Tiger Shark ___________________________

we are often asked the impossible question, what is our favorite shark ? It’s too difficult to choose one but lately we are extremely enticed by local sharks to Santa Monica Bay and the Pacific. Mako Sharks... the fastest shark species in the world. They can reach speeds of 60 mph and travel 35 miles a day !! There are only two types of Makos: Shortfin and Longfin. Shortfin Makos are also known as Blue Pointer or Bonito sharks. Fishing is the largest threat to both Makos. They are unjustifiably feared because of their speed, hunting techniques (they stalk and attack from the bottom just like Great Whites), and their jumping abilities (scientists are not certain on why they breach, but question if it is a hunting capability). But, there has never been Shortfin Mako attack, and Longfin Makos have only been known to retaliate when trapped in fishing gear. Mako Shark is huge in the commercial fishing world (liver oil, fins, beautiful teeth) and often shows up at local fish markets regardless of its Vulnerable status. Be aware, these animals are wondrous ! #RespectNotFear #ProtectWhatYouLove #stopsharkfinning #savesharks 📷 @alessandrodemaddalena70

La ONU proclama el período 2021-2030 como la Década de las Ciencias Oceánicas para el Desarrollo Sostenible. El objetivo es movilizar a la comunidad científica, pero también a los políticos, a las empresas y a la sociedad civil en torno a un programa común de investigación y de innovación tecnológica. Una de las prioridades durante esos diez años será "reforzar y diversificar las fuentes de financiación”. En la actualidad los países dedican a las ciencias oceánicas entre el 0,04 % y el 4 % del dinero invertido en investigación y desarrollo (I+D). Sin embargo, hay casi 3.000 millones de personas que dependen de la biodiversidad marina y costera para su subsistencia y los océanos absorben casi un tercio del dióxido de carbono generado por los seres humanos y atenúan así el impacto del calentamiento global. La Organización de Naciones Unidas para la Educación, la Ciencia y la Cultura (UNESCO) destaca que pese a la importancia que tiene, la ciencia no ha conseguido evaluar los efectos acumulativos de las actividades humanas en los océanos y sus consecuencias en términos de contaminación, de calentamiento o de acidificación. Su directora general, Audrey Azoulay, pidió a todas las partes que se impliquen para "coordinar los esfuerzos de investigación". "Los océanos cubren más del 70 % del globo, pero apenas hemos explorado menos del 5 %. Es nuestra nueva frontera. Tenemos muchas lagunas de conocimiento sobre los océanos, a pesar de su papel crucial para mantener nuestro planeta seguro y respirable", señaló Azoulay. Recordó que para sondear el océano se necesitan barcos específicos, explotar imágenes de satélite, recurrir a robots submarinos o a vehículos sumergibles, que implican "una inversión importante". #pacificolibre #fishing #pescailegal #sostenibilidad #protectwhatyoulove #savesharks

The 11th most dangerous shark in the world according to ISAF based on unprovoked attacks is the Nurse Shark! I know what your thinking...impossible! Anyone that swims in the ocean knows this species does not attack. According to ISAF, if you pull on a sharks tail and it bites you, that is unprovoked! Completly wrong, that's self defense! Sharks are in great need of our protection!

Plastic Sadness. Looking for small things you can do that can create a big impact for our environment? Eliminating single use plastics from your life is a perfect place to start. The fact is, our oceans are plastic now. Whales wash up starved to death and full of plastic shit in their bellies. If our brothers and sisters of the seas aren’t starving to death, they’re tangled in our garbage, hunted and trawled for our consumption. Poisoned by our oils and dumping of chemicals. We treat our planet as if we loathe her, despise her, abhor her very being. How could it be thought of any other way? There are so few guardians of our Mother and so many destroyers. The time has passed where fish to eat was an option. There is no such thing as sustainable fisheries/fishing. There is nothing left and what is gotten is contaminated to a state of biohazard. Stop using single use plastics like straws, cutlery, plates, styrofoam cups and plates. For the sake of us all. • • • • • • #StopPollution #RefuseSingleUse #SayNoToPlastic #savethefishies #savethesea #savetheocean #ocean #oceanconservation #beach #mermaid #veganmermaid #guardianofthesea

Fear an ocean without sharks because sharks aren’t the monsters we make them out to be. They are apex predators and play a major role in the ocean when it comes to a healthy and balanced trophic system. Without sharks, you destroy the entire food chain. “The shark is the apex predator in the sea. Sharks have molded evolution for 450 million years. All fish species that are prey to the sharks have had their behavior, their speed, their camouflage, their defense mechanisms molded by the sharks” Paul Watson. As Eugenie Clark says, “the ‘gangsters’ of the deep had gotten a bad rap” and it’s way past due to educate the world on the ecological importance of sharks in our oceans. I highly recommend diving with @oneoceandiving as well as just diving and exploring the ocean in general. If you are curious, let me know and id be more than happy to take you on on a little free dive here in San Diego. Its estimated in that 2050 we will experience a total collapse of marine ecosystems.

The best gift one can receive is a gift of experience. Super thankful Cory and Chad’s aunt and uncle bought us this shark dive for Christmas. If anyone is visiting Oahu, I HIGHLY recommend it! 💙(Cory opted not to go 🙄) . . . . . #luckywelivehawaii #oneoceandiving #oneoceanresearch #savesharks #haleiwa #northshoreoahu #traveloahu #ENDsharkfinsoup

A Shark Biologist And Aerospace Engineer Team Up To Discover Oceanic Whitetip Behaviors - Oceanic whitetip sharks move with extreme efficiency, exploiting physics to maximize their energy surplus for both hunting and downtime. A team of scientists that included shark biologists, an aerospace engineer and statisticians spent several years developing precise calculations based on the oceanic whitetip’s average size, swimming location, water temperatures, location of prey in the water and daily activities. The team was led by FIU marine scientist Yannis Papastamatiou, who wanted to learn more about the elusive creatures. Oceanic whitetips reside almost exclusively in open water, making them more difficult to study than coastal sharks. Papastamatiou likens their habitat to the desert, a vast ecosystem where food is sparse. When any animal consumes prey, it gets energy. When it’s searching for prey, it’s losing energy. Papastamatiou wanted to know what behavior could maximize an animal’s energy surplus and if oceanic whitetips behaved as such. He called on Gil Iosilevskii, an aerospace engineer from Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, for some basic calculations. Papastamatiou quickly realized basic wouldn’t cut it. Iosilevskii turned to calculations he uses to determine optimal flight performance for planes. #protectwhatyoulove #sharkweek #shark #saveoursharks #sharks #sharkawareness #ilovesharks #sharky #scuba #surf #beach #fishing #savesharks #sharklover #sharkconservation #learnsupportprotect #learn #support #protect #finalliance #elasmobranch #ourblueplanet #savetheoceans

Hello!!! Good morning Shark Divers ,, WAZ UP? Here we go with just another tiger shark coming in close to almost give a kiss... Just some humor this morning, but seriously this is a massive predator to be respected and also to be admired..They are not man eaters but this is their oceans and we are a guest and sometimes the sharks can be territorial and protective of their hunting areas. Also curious and can approach a diver out of curiosity to see if you are possible food source, normally swimming around in a circle making passes but after determining you are not a threat or their type of food they swim away. 99% of shark attacks on humans are by a mistake in identity of their food source. Biting but letting go after they realize the human is not on their menu , in some case this can be mortal to a human! @silenthunterpty #savingoursharks #savingoursharks #savesharks #sharkconservation #sharkbehavior @oneoceanresearch @silenthunterpty @oneoceandiving @hecsaquatic @nauticamhousings @gopro_panama @sony.a7r2

From Science Daily and the University of Southampton- "Sharks urgently need our help, but to help them we also need to understand them. Our study has helped by identifying important shark feeding grounds. New technologies like satellite and isotope tracking are giving us the information we need to turn the tide on these beautiful and fascinating animals." 🦈 Article linked on our fb page 📷 Uryadnikov Sergey #shark #sharks #savesharks #sharkconservation #sharkadvocate #letstalkshark #apexpredatornotmonster

Hello from the other sideeeeeee (of this shipwreck). Built in 1876, the Ethel was a 711-tonne iron ship. She ran aground in a storm while on her way to South Africa in January 1904. 🤓💙 - - - - - - - #ethelbeach #shipwreck #yorkepeninsula #southaustralia #seeaustralia #adventuretime #adventure #exploremore #outdooradventures #shark #savesharks #saveourseas #saveouroceans #marineconservation #marinedebris #marinelife #makeadifference #respectthesea

My #plasticfree #crueltyfree secret for beachy waves. Just picked up this shampoo bar from @lushcosmetics in efforts to #reducewaste in my life. Small steps at a time. I still have a long way to go but I'll get there. Every year about 1.2 billion bottles of shampoo/conditioner bottles are purchased in the US alone, but out of the total 10.5 million tons of plastic waste the USA produces, Americans only end up recycling 1-2% of that. 😩These shampoo bars are equal to 2-3 shampoo bottles. How awesome is that?! Not only are you doing good for the environment 🌎, but you're also doing good to your wallet. 💸💸💸 These guys are budget friendly. #plasticistherealkiller Follow @oneoceanglobal @mission_blue @respect_the_fin @oceanramsey @juansharks @seajewl @mermaid_kayleigh @oneoceanconservation @ecoceanic for some rad inspo. Ps. Stay tuned for some beach cleanups and conservation efforts in the Seattle area. #itstheirocean #savetheocean #savesharks #fairtrade #sustainableliving 💦🤙🙌🤗😍🐙🐟🦀🦈🐠🐢

Great white sharks (Carcharodon carcharias) are listed as vulnerable on the #IUCN redlist. Major threats include sport-fishing, trophy hunting/demand for souvenirs, the shark-fin trade, the aquarium trade, shark nets, and culls. White sharks cannot sustain any directed fishing pressures as their numbers have been known to decline drastically even after small culling events and fisheries show evidence of severe population declines of white sharks since the mid-20th century. Some protections are in place but inadequate enforcement is still an issue, especially with the high monetary value of white shark products and popular misconceptions and fear mongering.

Pelagic (open ocean) species are not limited to only the animals in the ocean, but also those who fly above it. The Laysan Albatross is one of many open ocean birds spending most of their lives out at sea. Laysan Albatross can fly over 2,000 miles in a single day and can spend up to 5 years in the water. Their wingspan reaches 6.5 feet; they can sleep in flight and can sore for hours without a single flap of their wings. Coming back to land only to nest, these birds are known for their intricate courtship dances. Laysan Albatross mate for life, raising a single chic at a time every 1-3 years (FWS). Hawaii is home to 2 of 22 Albatross species, the Black Footed Albatross and the Laysan Albatross (BirdWeb). The Laysan Albatross is known to breed on the northwestern Hawaiian islands where their is minimal human disturbance. Though this majestic bird has a lifespan of 50+ years, its overall lifespan as a species is in decline. Laysan Albatross are endangered species and upon examination, researches have found one of the culprits to the decline in Albatross health- plastics. A study done with the Marine Pollution Bulletin to examine the health of Albatross chick’s upper digestive tract and found that 45 out of 50 (90%) of the sampled chicks contained plastic within them!! Plastics expose these birds toxins, choking hazards, and obstruction within their gut (USGS). Let’s reduce our plastic use and reduce the chances of our trash ending up in the belly’s of these birds! #Albatross #endangeredbirds Post by @oxyyjennn Amazing video (turn up your volume) by multitalented photographer and boat captain @hkffishguy of albatross doing their mating ritual

☝️A zebra shark, or leopard shark, changes its appearance over time. Juveniles have stripes on their skin (like a “zebra”) and as they become adults, their skin becomes spotted (like a “leopard”). . . Like this one is doing... they have the ability to breathe easily while resting on the sea floor. They point towards the natural water flow and pump water through their gills without requiring any movement 💦. . . 📷: @poppythefish47. . Information sourced: www.livescience.com
