It was the silence before the storm. The wind and water were so calm that you can actually make out the words on our boat during the saftey stop. This week it has been hauling and hauling. Not really giving us a break to do our last 2 survey sites in the sound. Even though the work in the sound is usually quite straight forward and relatively weather independent, the wind direction this time causes white caps even in the sound. 🌪😓🌊 Hopefully the slight decrease in wind which is forecasted for tomorrow enables us to get the last leg of the survey done. 📷😁🦈☀️ @doecayman @sharkconservationteamcayman #sharkresearch #sharkconservation #caymanislands #caribbean #diving #girlsthatscuba #sharkdiving #sharkscience #divecayman #visitcayman #boat #underwater #underwaterphotography #scubadiving #science #research #thisismyoffice #marinebiology #sharks #conservation #oceanconservation #challengeaccepted #phd #phdlife #womeninstem #womeninscience #phdstudent

This is awesome! As a #travelwriter I recently updated an article about Maya Bay with the announcement of its indefinite closure by the Thai government. When the apex predators are back, it's always a good sign. Hopefully Maya Bay continues to recover its former beauty after years of thousands of tourists. Overtourism is so damaging and if you #travel please make mindful choices to tread as lightly as possible on our planet. #Repost @sharkguardian (@get_repost) ・・・ In May 2018 Maya Bay, famously known from the movie The Beach, was closed to boats and tourists. In October 2018 a statement came that the bay would be closed indefinitely. Here is a vide from a few days ago a Blacktip Reef Sharks returning to the bay!

Humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) are migratory species, meaning that there is the mass movement of the species due to the availability of resources (Andrews-Goff et al., 2018). For example, a species may migrate to find suitable breeding habitats or more abundant food sources. These migration patterns are often linked to seasons, and with humpback whales, they move from low latitudes in winter to high latitudes in summer (Andrews-Goff et al., 2018). This includes here in Oahu, Hawaii. North Pacific humpback whales migrate from Alaska to Hawaii every winter (November-May) to breed and raise their calves. However, the understanding of humpback whale migration patterns has been limited. Now, improvements in technology have allowed for satellite tags to be used. Tracking the migration patterns of humpback whales will help scientists and policymakers understand how migration patterns change according to human pressures and climate change (Andrews-Goff et al., 2018). The more we can find out about these species and understand their population dynamics will help us conserve and protect them. Come join us on one of our pelagic shark dives to learn about sharks, humpback whales, and other Hawaiian marine life! While sharks are the focus of our program we usually see whales at the surface on a daily basis and if you’re lucky they might swim by to check you out while in the water with the sharks!

#DidYouKnow Hammerhead sharks are great hunters that use their oddly shaped heads to improve their ability to find prey. The wide head allows for a broader spread of highly specialized sensory organs that they use to find food. Additionally their wide-set eyes give them a better visual range than most other sharks. 🦈 #RespectTheSea PC @bobcatlisa

Its sharktober and black and white photos are feeling appropriate. Enter the ocean and you're entering their world. It's a healthy balance of respect and fear. I dont ever take enteracting with these animals lightly as they are still apex predators. Too much fear and unnecessary acts get committed around the world like shark nets and targeted shark fishing resulting in population decline along with bycatch. Too little fear and a wild animal may act out of self defense from harrassment. Its important to find the balance in order for us to learn to coexist. Join me on a dive to learn that balance with @hawaiiadventurediving #sharkweek #sharkdiving #hawaiiadventurediving #helpsavesharks #savesharks #sharkconservation #sharkeducation #drift_freediving #whatsYourDrift #thanksbutnotanks #oceanlife #sealife #hawaii #tourtheocean #discoverocean #madeofocean #ig_oahu #neverstopexploring #explore #ocean #ig_captures #sharkdiving #conservation #hawaii #oahu #oceanic #marveloushawaii #plpix #discoversharks

#Repost from @finalliance. And again. Ocean trash victim or the work of a human to look like it? RIP poor shark. 🦈 “St. Johns County staff said the 6-foot shark had a plastic brim of an old hat wrapped around its neck and gills.

Hammerheads are one of the masterpiece of the ocean 💙🦈 Their body is built to hunt, find and turn rapidly with one of the best and most interesting looking shapes of the animal kingdom. Like every shark, the hammerhead’s nose is covered in sensory receptors called Ampullae of Lorenzini. Although, differently than any other species, their flattened and laterally extended head allows more of these receptors to scan the bottom, turning them into living metal detectors. #Repost @drneilhammer ・・・ great hammerhead at dusk . . . #SharkResearch #SharkConservation #sharkdiving #nature #fishing #diving #surfing #fish #scuba #beach #oceans #love #surf #wildlife #sharks #photooftheday #saltlife #follow #Whales #SharkWeek #love #picoftheday #epic #Freedive #videos #travel #animals #universityofmiami #miami #hammerhead

Are you interested in #shark conservation? If so, check out this new paper published by #emLab researchers, "Leveraging Satellite Technology to Create True Shark Sanctuaries." Unfortunately, many marine sanctuaries around the world still experience high levels of illegal fishing. To help reverse this trend, our team members analyzed a specific shark sanctuary in The Republic of the Marshall Islands to make a set of recommendations for improving protection for sharks! To read the full paper, please visit our publications page on our website (link in bio). .

Jaws transformed two notes into the anthem to summon terror from our subconscious. It is so tragicly sad when my friends (adults) can’t wander into the ocean with me past their knees “because of Jaws”. Let’s always remember this made-up creature represents the proverbial “monster” of our subconscious and not a real animal. -Later in life, Benchley came to regret writing such sensationalist literature about sharks, which he felt encouraged excessive fear and unnecessary culls of such an important predator in ocean ecosystems and became an outspoken advocate for marine conservation. #jaws #sharks #peterbenchely #sharkconservation #greatwhite #fishquote #quotes #oceanquotes #mermaidscience #mermaidscientist

Wonder what type of shark this would get identified as then reported on those shark spotting aps? Who knows. Shark id from the air is not hard if the right training is given and how to estimate the size is explained. I've been with untrained observers and the usual over estimate is about 1m sometimes over 2m. When we started our surveys there were no guidelines or training so we had to figure how to do it accurately and with pression ourselves. Accuracy is being close to the right estimate and presssion is repeating the same estimate for the same object. We estimated a number of objects from the air on land and in the water then ground truthed by going and measuring. park benches, logs, small boats, kayaks ect Doing a north run then a south run meant we could check with the GPS position if a shark was the same one by its direction and distance from last mark with average swimming speed. We never claimed to be perfect but under 0.5m was goal. Sharks deeper then 3m were very hard and often we made a couple of passes to confirm our initial estimate Mostly there was slight higher estimate of the same individual on the south run by 0.1 to 0.2m. Maybe from sun angle maybe more water movement as the south run was always after the north. When we had a tagged shark we could check for sure. the best example was a one we called at 2.8m white that had been tagged the year before at 2.6m allowing for 30cm growth per year we may have been 10cm out. Not bad from 500 ft.
