As promised, I have more sharky goodness for you – the PSA I shot with Oceana in June! Every year, fins from as many as 73 million sharks end up in the global shark fin trade and it’s on us to do something about it. Tune in today as I takeover @Oceana’s Instagram
to share more about why we’re calling for a nationwide ban on the buying and selling of shark fins in the U.S. Together, we can protect sharks and the health of our oceans. #FinBanNow πŸ“·: @petezuc Pete Zuccarini / @sharkweek http://bit.ly/2trlu0m

Don't fear sharks, fear for them. Wish #sharkweek would do a show about how many sharks are attacked by humans every year.... It's an average of 70,000,000-100,000,000+ sharks killed by humans. Purposeful, cruel, wasteful deaths that destroy ecosystems other humans and marine life rely on. Seems strange to put the negativity on sharks. #whoistherealmonster Photo I took of a beautiful and cautious #tigershark one of millions of peaceful incredible #sharkencounters ive had over my lifetime. They are not puppies, but they are not monsters. #apexpredatornotmonster #RespectLife #respectnature #respectsharks #dontbiteintothefear #questionperceptions #givesharksachance #educationalentertainment #learnaboutsharks #real #fact #truth

I LOVE #MyTeam #OneOcean this mornings @oneoceaneducation meeting started with a #sharksprinkle birthday shark dive for our educational and cultural lead @rams_hokulani @saltandaloha πŸ’™πŸ¦ˆπŸŽ‰ Not everyone could make the meeting quite a few had to stay and take care of da Manō but I cannot express enough how grateful I am to have such an inspiring team working together for the same cause. One of my absolute favorite things to do is go do presentations and speak in schools. It is so invigorating and gives me so much hope to talk to students of all ages and see the change, #bethechange #makeanimpact and share knowledge #forthefuture leaders. Today we outlined the next phase of developing educational video presentations per age group curriculum. Along with campaign ideas, designs, and needs: Like finding artists willing to donate their time and talent to revamp educational coloring pages and graphic artists for more advanced science presentations, do you know anyone willing to help out?

For me and my JAWSOME #shark ohana and ever growing team every week is #sharkweek In an effort to offset the fear that gets hyped up this week with the heavily sensationalized shows we're asking people to repost this anti fear shark conservation campaign photo vid clips or just post your favorite shark related photo with a positive message about sharks. Everyday sharks swim past people with no incident but they don't get much press about that so we're taking a proactive approach and working hard to offset the sensationalism with actual facts. Enjoy! And Mahalo #ThankYou for reposting and encouraging others to #givesharksachance #dontbuyintothefear #apexpredatornotmonster #savesharks #helpsavesharks #educationalentertainment #thisisreality Special mahalo again to #seastersforconservation affiliate organization @keiko_conservation for putting these together with @juansharks photos πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ¦ˆπŸ¬πŸ¦ˆπŸ¬πŸ¦ˆπŸ¬πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™ #StrongerTogether

Love this photo by @juansharks with info graphic edit by our collab #SeastersForConservation @keikoconservation Help raise awareness that sharks are vital for a healthy #ocean and planet and they are being wiped out. Don't bite into the fear. #GiveSharksAChance #apexpredatornotmonster #questionyourperception the media slanders sharks reputation to capitalize off selling fear but that misconstrued portrayal has left people blind to the truth that we actually need them and now they need our protection and your voice. Trying to get as many people to join me in speaking up for sharks and the ocean environment, please repost during the medias #sharkweek & #helpsavesharks and #savetheocean πŸ’™ #mahalo #thankyou #loveocean

#LoveBites Vid #sharkresearch documenting #sharkbehavior and population trends with @oneoceandiving @oneoceanresearch @oneoceaneducation @oneoceanconservation #northshoreoahu #hawaiisharkcount #hawaiisharkprogram Vid shows a few of the older females cruising higher in the water column. This time of year we see more scars potentially due to mating or competitive behavior. Usually we can observe more agonistic, or territorial, body language, also known as threat displays, but can also just be a way of maintaining the peace through a clearly understood social hierarchy. Whether this social hierarchy gives preference to both food, territory, or signifies the most biologically desirable females for mating is still unknown but the social hierarchy and sorting process can readily be identified and recorded by a trained eye. There is so much going on in this clip that while it may seem random even the body language through the initial pass toward the camera speaks volumes about this large female shark ID #Marlu affectionately named after @juansharks mother #ladyboss #sharklady Learn more about my #fintastic #Jawsome #sharknerd #sharkresearch #marinescience #ethology #ecology #sharksocialdynamics come join my team of highly trained biologists out for a fun, exciting, and extremely educational program Book online at OneOceanDiving.Com and #givesharksachance #overcomefear #apexpredatornotmonster #learnaboutsharks Vid on @GoPro #hero5 #hero3000 #beaherosaveashark

πŸ³πŸ¦ˆπŸšŠπŸ›³Incoming! 😍 Not ones to be camera shy #WhaleShark swimming up to @juansharks giving some perspective to this beautiful and tragically now endangered species. Whale sharks are absolutely harmless to humans but humans kill on average 70-100 million sharks every year, whale sharks are highly prized in the #fintrade due to their size, beautiful markings, and rarity. #helpsavesharks and help #savewhalesharks by helping raise awareness to their plight especially if you're traveling over to China where their fins are sent for the demand for #sharkfinsoup merely a #statussymbol in #China but a wasteful and cruel practice to support. But things are changing: Check out our global star ambassadors from China-Taiwan @sunnyboyyy and @dizzydizzo and biologist #SharonKwok and the new museum exhibition @parkviewartsaction helping raise awareness from within along with @oneoceanglobal other groups like @wildaid @wildaidhk are working with #chinese basketball celebrity #YaoMing and actors like @maggieq whose also been out filming with sharks with @oneoceandiving to film for #awareness campaigns.
Other great ways to help save whale sharks is by supporting responsible research and ecotourism, because when any countries government recognizes that they have more to gain from protecting sharks the killing will stop and that's when the real change begins. In order to coexist...they need to exist #givesharksachance #apexpredatornotmonster #coexist #helpsavesharks #freedive #freediveforacause #dorsalwatch #finbannow #Freedivewithsharks #sharkdiver #travelforacause #oneoceandiving #oneocean #OceanRamsey #oceaninspired

One of my absolutely favorite things to see when I am out ⛡️ #Dolphins gliding effortlessly through the #ocean Beautiful to watch both above and below the water all around the world. This week out with @north_sails A 60+ year established global technical sailing and lifestyle brand that's making a conscious transition to a more conservation minded and supporting company. I respect this so much because I understand businesses and established brands don't necessarily need to change so the voluntary decision to transition to more eco friendly materials and donate to programs like 1 % for the planet is so respectful and appreciated from a #globalcitizen #conservationist point of view. Change doesn't happen over night but it has to start somewhere and I am elated to see so much within my lifetime. #gobeyond #embraceChange #ForTheFuture #progress #businessevolution #bussinessgoals #businessideas #northsails #greatbusinessideas #influencer #innovativeideas #sailing #travelforacause #lifeonthewater #collaborateforacause #savetheocean Vid from #hawaii out with @oneoceandiving

#freediving down to @juansharks watching his back as he watches mine out of respect for these incredible creatures. I love sharks and it's that love that = respect combined with over a lifetime of continuously observing what they are capable of; it never ceases to amaze me how patient and forgiving these apex predators are of unknowing or unaware humans. They are faster, stronger, incredibly more efficient and perfectly adapt to their environment, the ocean. Remember #itstheirocean they were there shaping it for millions of years before human kind arrived. We depend on the #ocean and so we depend on sharks for the health and regulation of marine ecosystems #HowSharksAffectUsAll was the theme of the #TEDTalk #TEDXtalk @ted I did a couple years ago, if you haven't seen it or you're just starting to look deeper into sharks please check it out on YouTube or at oneoceandiving.com I am working on a series of much more in depth shark information for YouTube for those interested in expanding their knowledge and awareness of sharks in a scientific and practical manner mostly focused on my masters research in #ethology or #sharkbehavior and it's relation specifically to #surfers #swimmers #divers and general beach goers. #staytuned for more info I am putting out just in hopes that it will help people better understand and appreciate and #respectsharks as well as potentially help people to avoid adverse interactions which would help people to continue to support conservation efforts. #shark101 #sharkbehavior #learnaboutsharks #sharkblog #discoversharks #sharkethology #sharkbehavior #sharkwhisperer #sharkscience #OceanRamsey #therealsharkweek every week πŸ˜‰πŸ’™πŸ¦ˆπŸ’™πŸŒŠπŸ˜˜ Photo @juansharks on @gopro #hero3000 #oneoceandiving
