#Perspective is so powerful and influential. I am reminded of how grateful I am for so many experiences in life because they have given me more than enough perspective to know how lucky I am and keep me eternally grateful. I’ve had so many moments in life where I’ve been able to say I could die happy right now. Ive also had even more years of my life where I’ve been so over worked I felt like it was killing me but I pushed through it, kept it up, and it made me so much stronger and now for that so am grateful because my capacity for work and my abilities have grown and are so much more diverse. My wide expanse of abilities and knowledge both common, practical, and academic is a product of seeking, exploring, questioning, and actively trying to learn as much about everything I find interesting or useful. Forever grateful for those that inspire, follow/support, and help me to be my best and realize bigger dreams and goals for sharks and the ocean πŸ’™ #helpsavesharks #savetheocean PHOTO BY MY @juansharks ❀️❀️❀️ #juansharks πŸ“Έ #Freediving with #freediver @daniel.hulme #Tigersharkwetsuit by @xcelwetsuits our soon-ish πŸ˜πŸ¦ˆπŸ’™πŸ˜ #freediveforacause #humble #gratitude #attitude #workhard #worksmarter #bebetter #beyourself #love #aloha #tigershark #sharks #oceanramsey

Reef and beach clean up tomorrow for #earthday at #makairesearchpier 9am-1pm @oneoceanconservation @sustainablecoastlineshawaii Hope to have you join the party πŸ˜‰πŸŽ‰ PHOTO BY @juansharks of a PREDATOR PARTY #baitball fish buffet. These types of predation events are rare and exciting and I am very fortunate to have seen and experience quite a few over my lifetime. This one off #socorro was one of the mellowest but still very exciting but generally you need to work hard to keep the fish from trying to hide around you because that would be a dangerous situation β€œdon’t be the bait ball.” I’ve been lucky enough to visit the #galapagosislands and #cocosisland and one of the trips I did with #drsylviaearle of @mission_blue we saw perhaps over ten bait balls one after the next with dolphins, tuna, sharks, and birds working together to consume all of the fish. What was really exciting about this encounter was getting to share it with so many people and also the fact that this was the first trip in years where I only saw maybe one floating plastic bag. Even the huge bait balls off of cocos were often started with fish that had been hiding under drifting plastics.
The problem comes when the predators try to eat the fish they eat the plastic too. Come help clean up the beach tomorrow and have a happy #beautiful earthday.

#adore #dolphin #dolphins #ocean #underwater If you look closely you can see the scratches on the skin of this dolphin, they are called tooth rakes. Dolphins rake their teeth across each other as a physical way of maintaining and establishing a social hierarchy within and across their pods. Along with other very complex vocalizations and behaviors these mammals are capable of dynamic emotional ranges and actually utilize a larger % of their brain than even humans. Help keep Dolphins wild by not supporting Captains dolphin swim programs or facilities that capture and hold wild dolphins. I strongly support #rescue facilities but do not see the need or humanity in keeping #wild healthy animals captive and enslaved for profit from entertainment. #keepthemwild #dontbuyaticket #blackfish #freedom #captivecetaceans #dolphinswim #sealifepark #seaworld @keiko_conservation @dolphin_project @cetacean_freedom_ @liberate_cetaceans @blackfish_movie #documentary #orca #freelolita #lolita #swimwithdolphins in the wild only πŸ’™ Photo taken while scuba diving with @clubcantamar in #revillagigedo

β€œKeep your smile to the sun and let the shadows fall behind you.” Smiling up at this #cutie 🐬 while spinning surrounded by #dolphins 🐬🐬🐬 in the deep. It’s very easy to smile surrounded by playful dolphins and out in nature in the deep ocean. My work is more work than play but it’s the breath taking, jaw dropping, awe-struck, inspiring moments surrounded by #naturesbeauty that help keep me constantly grateful and re-inspired to continue my work 7 days a week for years. Life can have ups and downs but it really comes down to perspective because even the β€œdowns” when you look at them at the right angle can be an up or blessing in disguise. Extremely grateful for this perspective and angle, opportunity, experience, and life.

The moment a beautiful #giantmanta swims over you for several minutes to enjoy a massage of bubbles...I wish everyone could experience this. Giant #mantas or β€œ #PandaFlatSharks β€œ as #oneoceanteam #oceanconservationist @madi_makoff calls them πŸŽ‰πŸ’™πŸ₯žπŸΌπŸ¦ˆ are sometime targeted for their gills for chinese medicine markets, even though they have no actual medicinal qualities. Its so sad because they are such gentle and intelligent beings who are absolutely harmless to humans, they don't have any barbs or stingers or any defense mechanism at all. Its projected that targeting of mantas will increase as shark populations are decimated and #sharkfins are harder to supply for #sharkfinsoup Please help spread awareness for #sharks and #rays through social media and check out more on @oneoceanconservation Oneoceanconservation.org and @keiko_conservation KeikoConservation.Org and help #savetheocean #savemantas @oneoceanglobal @waterinspired #waterinspiredconservation WaterInspired.Org #conservationist #savesomething #speakupforsomething #swimforsomething #freediveforacause #foracause #grateful #blessed #humble #happy #hopeful #oneocean #oneoceandiving #explore @exploreorg #amazing #beautiful Diving #revillagigedo with @clubcantamar

Check out @juansharks swimming under a #baitball surrounded by hundreds of #sharks picking off small fish. This was towards the end when most of the fish had been picked off I took the camera and Gopro to get a shot of the guy usually always BTS #MrShark #SharkPhotographer in his element enjoying watching the sharks fulfilling their ecological role and enjoying an hour plus long buffet πŸŽ‰ Check out Juan and my very very talented #Seaster @nani.moana of @oneoceanglobal @waterinspired @oneoceaneducation @oneoceandiving #Oneoceanteam For more photos of this incredible and special experience. Bait balls can be very dangerous to approach so approach with caution and watch the fish if the try to swim at you and hide around you swim away before they can hide around you to avoid having the sharks pick them off if you. Life lesson β€œYou never want to be the bait ball,” all in all one of the most β€œwell behaved” bait balls I’ve experienced with so many novice divers around it truly was a testament to the #sharks that they didn’t accidentally bite anyone even amidst the chaos of a predation event. #Ilovebaitballs Stay tunes, I am so excited to share more just making my way home to #Hawaii ✈️✈️✈️ OneOceanDiving.Com can’t wait to be back with my home sharks too πŸ’™πŸ¦ˆπŸ’™ #Manō #Ohana #Aumakua #kuuipo #moana #aloha #malamamanō #hawaiisharks #learnaboutsharks #sharks #shark #freedive #livewithhonor #foracause

This is a relaxing moment, waiting patiently, happily, while this beautiful #tigershark just swims right up to me and puts her nose in my hand. I love the feeling of floating midwater column on their level and being allowed in their space #itstheirocean in such a gentle interaction. Photo by @juansharks #juansharks who originally started the # #apexpredatornotmonster which is so true, I’m not complacent with them, I don’t want to risk their reputation but there is something word can’t describe about meeting a shark and getting to know it on an individual basis.

#KangarooInTheOcean Animals are so awesome. I’ve never seen a kangaroo playing in the #ocean before this last visit to #Australia Such a beautiful place in the remote areas, so sad the government has opened up even more of the #greatbarrierreef to #fishing Australia has diverse and beautiful wildlife, my favorite of course, the #greatwhiteshark which is the whole reason why I visited Australia but like many places on the planet many animals are not given the full protection they need. #helpsavesharks by learning more about them and ways you can get involved in #conservation efforts in your area Join us through @oneoceanglobal and research conservation initiatives in your local area or if there are non then lead the charge and #bethechange and connect into our global network of conservationists.

Beyond #Shocked and #Disgusted I cannot wrap my mind around people killing sharks only for their #Fins only for a status symbol. To me they represent a shark that has been wastefully and likely cruelly killed and the greed and stupidity of those people who choose to support such a barbaric and destructive practice. #WTF is wrong with people? I really don’t get it? How can this be legal when science everywhere has proven nature has a balance and sharks have a critical ecological role & populations have been wiped out by over 90%. Are people really that afraid they just don’t care? Or are legislators just ignorant? WTF is the logic in allowing this completely wasteful practice to continue? I know this won’t be a popular post but someday soon there will be many more intelligent and caring people who share this same perspective. The effort for sharks is growing. They don’t have a voice and they need yours, please speak up for sharks, the ocean, nature, other animals that are being cruelly and wastefully killed. #SpeakUp #StandForSomething #BeTheChange #MakeAnImpact #GoBeyond #Explore @exploreorg BAN #SharkFinSoup #BanSharkFinSoup BAN #SharkFishing #BANsharkfishing #SaveSharks #SharkFins #SharkFin #HelpSaveSharks and #Help #SaveTheOcean Please repost and share everywhere Photos by @JuanSharks of @Oneoceanconservation @WaterInspired #SaveSeahorses #seahorses Swipe to see just 1% of the death we documented in #China
