Black Tip reef sharks in French Polynesia | Current time: 6:30am. The sun's not up yet, but I've got work to do. I was dreaming I was ^here^ and woke up in the best mood! In my dream there were hammerhead and lemon sharks too.. and a cat that ate my lunch on the dock 😂 Funny thing is, at this point, I've probably spent more of my life with sharks than I have with cats. Blood drawn by cats : A lot. They have so many sharp parts! Blood drawn by sharks : Zero. They too have sharp parts, but reading their body language has (so far) allowed me to keep teeth and skin separate - and pray the two shall never meet! Meanwhile, I'm positive cats lure me close to them, with their purrs and fluff, just so they can surprise attack with claws and teeth on my unsuspecting hand/leg/face 😂 Have a great Wednesday and #watchoutforcats #saveoursharks #bansharkfinning @seethroughsea

📸: @juansharks I ka wā kahiko on the island of Molokaʻi, there lived a man named Kamalo. Kamalo was a kahuna (priest) serving under aliʻi nui (king) Kupa, in Mapulehu Valley. In the valley were temples devoted to the gods, where the king and his priests would go to honor and pay homage to the higher powers. One day, Kupa went on a voyage, and left Kamalo in charge of the village. He told Kamalo not to let anyone visit the temples during his absence, or they would face the consequences. Kamalo warned everyone in the village, but his sons were curious and pushed their luck. They had always heard Kupa banging drums deep in the valley to communicate with his priests and the gods, and they wanted to try them out. When Kupa returned and heard about Kamaloʻs sons in the temple, he killed them and offered them up as sacrifice to the gods. Months had passed and Kamalo was still bitter about his children, so he decided to seek revenge on Kupa. He asked all the gods to help him, but they all refused. Kamalo had just about given up when he remembered a heiau (temple) devoted to the shark god Kauhuhu, located in Kalaupapa on the north shore. He left his village and journey to the sea edge, and begged the shark god to help him. The shark god agreed to help Kamalo, for he felt his pain as he spoke about his children. Kauhuhu told Kamalo to tell his friends to sacrifice animals in his name, and to build a fence around their hale (house). If the house had the fence around it, Kauhuhu would command his flood waters to pass over the house. Months passed without anything happened, until one day black clouds and lightning filled the skies. Kamalo and his friends rushed back to their houses and watched in terror as a giant tidal wave had destroyed everything in its path; washing away the temple and King Kupa to a bay. In the bay was Kauhuhu, who finished Kupa off for causing his new friend anguish. Scattered throughout our culture are amazing legends like this to remind us of how important sharks and the ocean were to Hawaiians. Learn about shark behavior and the cultural respect we have for them on a research tour. #nosharkfinsoup #bansharkfinning #oneoceandiving @ge_keoni

11,417 sharks are killed per hour by humans and only 5 people on average are killed by sharks each year. Help protect sharks by not purchasing shark products and fish oils. Sharks are important top predators of the ocean and we need them! #bansharkfinning #savesharks #sharkconservation 🦈❤

Shark finning is inhumane and wasteful ! Fins are for sharks, NOT soup #bansharkfinning #savethesharks #boycottFedEx #racingextinction

Since 2003, I've had the unique pleasure of being there for my favorite tiger shark friend...Emma, in her time of need! During all this time I've kept her clean of parasites as well as removed 4 hooks underwater by using affection to gain her trust! All this time when she leaves for her annual vacation, I pray nightly that she will not be killed by the many humans, that would kill her just for an image of her dead like there trophy! I've watched her acquire mating scars and grow in size through 6 pregnancies. Living at sea since 1998 has enabled me to get to know over a hundred large sharks on a personal friendly level. I love sharks beyond what is comprehensible. So for me, when I plead with all who care about wildlife to please sign and share the petition in my bio to end the shark fin trade in the US once and for all, it is very very personal! Yesterday dead Tigers sharks were found on the Florida beaches as a result of legal fishing on our public beaches! The dead tiger shark I personally saw, had actually been caught and released on my boat by Dr. Neal Hammerschlag and his excellent team in October of 2013. This could have been Emma! Please please help me save my remaining friends in the sea by signing and sharing the petition in my bio! You will be making a difference! Thanks so much for all that already have! I'm very grateful! @jim_abernethy #ilovesharks #finbannow #finfree #savesharks #missionblue #racingextinction #oceanasharkfintradeban #conservation #startwithonething #saveprotectedanimals #needlesskill #marineprotectedzones #bethechangetheworldneeds #bansharkfinning #bansharkfishing #jimabernethysscubaadventures

The Puffadder shyshark is a species of catshark, belonging to the family of scyliorhinidae found in the temperate waters off the coast of South Africa.

Thanks @captainpaulwatson and The #BarbiTwins for having me on #LATalkRadio to talk about federal legislation such as the #SharkFin Sales Elimination Act to #bansharkfinning . Glad to join @ftlaapparel and @optt_nard.

Snorkeling with whale sharks is definitely on my bucket list! The world's largest fish is such a gentle and docile giant. My heart swells at the thought of swimming with these glorious creatures! It's hard to fathom that people hunt and kill these majestic beings for only their flavourless fins to make a dish that is an ego driven status symbol. #bansharkfinning. I have recently partnered up with a company @sand_cloud that donates 10% of their profits to marine conservation. We need to do all we can to #savethefishies. I for one like to support companies that give back in such a positive way. Use code KimWo25 for 25% off.

This shot from @navvaz on a recent night dive to #Alimatha reminds us of our logo! We 💙 nurse sharks! #FulidhooDive #Maldives

My love for these animals can not even be put into words, so here's just a picture of me admiring their grace. 💙 #savethesharks #bansharkfinning #bahamas

Hello smiley! 🤗 Most fascinating creature I've ever seen in the sea 🌎💙🌊#hammerhead #hammerheadshark #sharkdive #cabo #bansharkfinning

Apologies beforehand for the crude images. Doco maker and frother @sharkgirlmadison wrote yesterday 'You want to change people who are killing sharks? Understand that they are just people and most of them have no concept that what they doing is wrong' and 'you have no right to decide who is your enemy based on the occupation they were thrown into from birth'....... I couldn't agree more with her words. I was in Taiwan last week and visited a 'small' fishing harbour on the East Coast. I was not shocked, as I was expecting it, but I must admit I struggled to keep my emotions under control. As a marine ecologist, I shouldn't mix feelings with science. I understand the negative consequences of these culls for the ecosystems and the fisheries themselves. But those people, the fishermen, the villagers: they don't. Education and understanding are the key to an issue so big. An issue we can't even measure because we don't know real numbers. Social media can be a pest sometimes. But it sure comes handy when trying to reach to more than one person at a time. Hopefully more and more people will become aware of this and more pressure will be put onto governments and departments to educate and apply drastic measures for a brighter future for our oceans. It's not looking great at the moment. @discoversharks #bansharkfinsoup #bansharkfinning #aware @projectaware #taiwan @discover_taiwan #travel #protest #education #sharks #sharkcull #flakeisnotfood #bansharkfinsoup #finsoup @seashepherd @seashepherdaustralia #marinebiology #marinescience @fish_thinkers @protect_sharks

How cute are these sharks though 🦈

Our buddy the #whaleshark is getting a wellness check up by Dr.Ella. Did you know Whale Sharks are now on the endangered species list? They are often killed for their fins to make #sharkfinsoup. Whale Sharks need their fins more than any person needs some soup! #finfree #finfreetoronto #savetheocean #savesharks #oceanicramsey #bansharkfinsoup #bansharkfinning #oneoceanglobalambassador #oneoceandiving #robstewart #marinebiology #futurescientist #girlswhostem

True story! Sharks are vital to the balance of the oceans eco systems. One vital point is they keep populations in balance of smaller species that feed on oxygen producing plants and life. The reverse effect of this would be less oxygen, more carbon dioxide rich waters that will effectively kill life in the sea, and snowball into irreversible damage.
We get roughly 70% of oxygen we breathe from our oceans, so it doesn't take a genius to realise how fragile and important life in our oceans are! Killing sharks is more damaging than most people realise. Spread the word!
