The turquoise blue waters of Mallorca made for a perfect pit spot between projects. @oceanramsey in her new one piece swimsuit that she collaborated with @xcel on.

#changingperceptions #photosforacause #happyshark #sharkweek This cheeky great white my look like he doesn't need ur help but white shark populations worldwide according to IUCN are Red Listed in Appendix 2 as Endangered. It may seem like in certain areas Like California and Australia that we have a lot right now but these are just hot spots. My goal as a photographer is to get people to look at sharks from a positive perspective, inspiring people to care about theses amazing animals. #helpsavesharks Come on a dive to learn about real shark behavior from @oneoceandiving @oneoceanresearch @waterinspired @oneoceanconservation @oneoceaneducation @oneoceanglobal @oceanramsey @ocean @mission_blue @discoversharks @discoverocean @north_sails Photo by #juanoliphant #juansharks #sharkconservation #coexist using a @aquatech_imagingsolutions @cressi1946 gear and @xcelwetsuits

#majestic #regal #whiteshark #whitepointer Australian government is looking to open white shark culling and fishing due to a selected public out cry. If scientific reports from the government agency CSIRO show there has been an increase of white sharks this year then it looks they will open the culling. White sharks are very slow to reproduce. Female white sharks don't become sexually reproductive until about 14ft in size and some studies estimate that it takes about 25 to 30 years to reach this size. Also white sharks have an elongated gestation period ranging 16 to 18 months and pupping an average of only 6 to 8 pups. Even if white shark populations have increased they can not handle these kind of fishing pressures. 🙏🏻Please Australia do not let this happen. #cagethefear #nocull #we #need #greatwhitesharks #for #a #healthy #ocean. @oneoceanconservation @oneoceandiving @oneoceanglobal @oneoceanresearch @oneoceaneducation @waterinspired @oceanramsey #real #sharkweek @discoversharks @saveourseasfoundation @sharkweek

Studies are showing a small increase in countries that protect these whales as a valuable resource #givenatureachance

I think this is one of my best photos yet! Definitely my best dolphin interaction. Dolphins just want to have fun. 😜. This wild bottle nose dolphin actually playfully stuck his tongue at me as this pod decided to get a closer look at my @aquatech_imagingsolutions housing for my @canonusa 1dx mark 2. #keepthemwild #emptythetanks #dontbuyaticket there is no need to captive these animals for our entertainment especially when interactions like this are possible in the wild. #explore #travel #freediving #photosforacause photo by #juanoliphant diving with @andycorbe @lauracorbe @oceanramsey #sandyfeet #adventurethatislife @cressi1946 @gopro @xcelwetsuits @guayaki #teamcanon @keiko_conservation @keiko_conservation_russia @keiko_conservation_italy @mermaidsforchange @emptythetankshawaii

Does @oceanramsey make anyone else think #Khaleesi #motherofSharks ? 😉 it's so cool watching the way she calmly gently interacts with the largest sharks on the planet. Here she gently guides this #tigersharks along side the boat during a #pelagic dive @oneoceandiving @oneoceanresearch #oneocean #oneoceandiving

@oceanramsey and the worlds largest predator. One of the most incredible experiences of my life. Sharing it with @andycorbe and @lauracorbe just made it that much better. #ApexPredatorNotMonster #mobydick #spermwhale photo by #juanoliphant using @aquatech_imagingsolutions @cressi1946 @xcelwetsuits while drinking @guayaki 🤙🏼@oceanramsey using @sanlorenzo_bikinis @oneoceandiving

@nina deep in the caves at Sharks Cove. Nina did a little free diving training with @oceanramsey and me and with in the hour she was already holding her breath for 2 mins and 30 seconds. #unicorn #mermaid #helpsavesharks #finbannow filming for shark conservation @ourplanet360 @markkassen @justinbuttsfilm @cheeklane
