Did you know that sharks play a very important role in the ocean by maintaining the species below them in the food chain and serving as an indicator for ocean health? ⠀ As they are on top of the food chain, they maintain the ecosystem healthy by removing the weakest and the sickest as well as keeping the balance with competitors helping to ensure species diversity.⠀ ⠀ If the sharks are eliminated, the marine ecosystem loses its balance and this could be seen already in places where sharks have been fished out. ⠀ ⠀ Remember, the sharks are no threat to us. Protect what you love, protect the sea and the planet. ⠀ #ecobabe #helpsavesharks Photo by @oceanramsey

I love seeing places were critically endangered animals are thriving. Whale sharks are the worlds largest fish and largest shark making the fins from this shark extremely valuable in the shark fin trade. Red listed by the IUCN as critically endangered. Place like this in the Philippines give me hope. #stopsharkfinning #stop #sharkfinsoup #stopsharkfinsoup #helpsavesharks to #savetheocean #oneocean #onechance #photooftheday Photo by @karanikolov have fun swimming with these guys captain @alexis_underthesea @oneoceandiving

#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 💙 #helpsavesharks #savetheocean PHOTO BY MY @juansharks ❤️❤️❤️ #juansharks 📸 #Freediving with #freediver @daniel.hulme #Tigersharkwetsuit by @xcelwetsuits our soon-ish 😍🦈💙😍 #freediveforacause #humble #gratitude #attitude #workhard #worksmarter #bebetter #beyourself #love #aloha #tigershark #sharks #oceanramsey

Curious about sharks? We study shark behavior, specifics on body language and it’s relation and change in the presence of humans and other animals, environmental conditions and other quantifiable and qualitative variables. When you come out with @oneoceandiving ask your guiding biologist or naturalist about the current trends in correlating variables or which sharks have been present recently. We record all of our data in an i-pad everyday while on board and would love to share and answer your questions.

That’s a beautiful shot! 🦈 🦈 🦈 📷 @juansharks ・・・ I normally try not to post these types of photos because most people that are terrified of sharks will look at this and continue to be horrified of sharks. Truth is that these animals rarely behave like this, most of there existence is just spent swimming peacefully in the ocean. White sharks are even know to go months with out eating. I love this photo because of the power and awe it captives and I know people will look 1st and hopefully read the caption. Even though white sharks are capable of using this kind of power and strength they are actually reserved, calculated, and cautious. Not the monsters that movies and media make them out to be and unfortunately they are in a very fragile state because of humans. Critically endangered, some studies show that there are less than 5,000 white sharks worldwide. #changethewaywelookatsharks #ApexPredatorNotMonster #cagethefear #photooftheday #photosforACuase #sharkconservation #sharks photo by #JuanOliphant using @aquatech_imagingsolutions in a 1dx mark 2 @canonusa #teamcanon diving with @oceanramsey @oneoceandiving @waterinspired #oneocean #onechance #helpsavesharks

One of the many petitions I started to stop shark fin import in Canada. Helping to make a #finfreetomorrow The bill is entering the House of Commons any day now...fingers crossed 🦈💙 #Repost @inkedqueen87 • • • 🌟Link in Bio🌟 I need everyone to repost this and help me get more signatures for my petition. It is crucial that we stop shark fin importation in Canada and you can help me make this happen. Canada being the 2nd biggest importer of shark fins outside of Asia by importing 100 TONS of shark fins per year, this needs to stop immediately! The government told me during my inquiry about their import, they tried justifying their actions by saying it is sustainable. It is NOT!

Bill S-238 in Canada is close to banning all trade of shark fins in the country and this petition supports that effort! 🦈 “Our oceans are facing many issues but shark finning is one that we cannot afford to ignore any longer, our sharks are disappearing and 1/3 of open water sharks are facing extinction. Shark Finning has been illegal in Canada since 1994 but the shark fin trade is still ongoing and we must stop the importation in our country, and in the city of Montreal to practice sustainability and allow our ecosystems to regenerate.” 🦈 Link to petition is on our fb #canada #stopsharkfinning #sharks #sharks #savesharks #helpsavesharks #sharkconservation #sharklife #sharkadvocate

VIDEO: Shark & Ray Protection Bill Dies At The House - HONOLULU, Hawaii - Senate Bill 2079 failed to get a hearing in the House Judiciary Committee, after passing through the Senate. (BIVN) – A bill that would have established penalties for capturing or killing rays and sharks in Hawaiʻian waters has died in the state legislature, despite wide-spread support. Senate Bill 2079 SD2 HD1 passed through the State Senate, as well as the House Committee on Ocean, Marine Resources, & Hawaiian Affairs, before stalling in the House Judiciary Committee. According to the description of the bill: Establishes penalties and fines for any person who knowingly captures, takes, possesses, abuses, or entangles any shark, whether alive or dead, or kills any shark, within state marine waters and makes it a misdemeanor. Expands the existing prohibition on knowingly capturing or killing a manta ray to all rays. Expands the prohibition regarding rays to cover knowingly capturing, taking, possessing, abusing, or entangling a ray, whether alive or dead, or killing a ray, within state marine waters. Provides certain exemptions.

These words come from my profound love of knowing such a beautiful soul. #robliveson #robstewart #Repost @inkedqueen87 • • • Ever since Rob passed away, I have been put on a journey that has both opened my heart and eyes to the world around me.I feel incredibly blessed to be alive and part of the wave of change that is happening globally. I never thought sharks would be the love of my life, neither would I have ever concidered saving these creatures but here I am, fighting with all Ive got because it is what my heart says I should do. ❤ I have been working hard to gather signatures for my petition to ban shark fin import in Canada and in being so involved in the shark community, I have met some amazing people who have touched my heart and soul. I have talked to my heros, exchanged with people who disliked sharks but after hearing my words, they walked away from our conversation as shark conservationists and its been surreal!! I think that I was put on this earth to carry on my friends legacy in honoring Robs mission to save sharks and our oceans. Today, I realized that I am right where I need to be and its liberating to find your purpose...it truly is. 🦈💙 I look forward to meeting other dedicated ocean people during my journey on this mission. 🌊🌍🦈💙 #shark #Conservation #oceanlife #ocean #environmentalist #helpsavesharks #petitions #care2 #boycott #Canada #sharkfintrade #life #purpose #dream #friend #legacy #mission #RobStewart #Finfree

Over in the North Atlantic, the Greenland shark (Somniosus microcephalus) is the longest-living known vertebrate. With a life span of at least 272 years—wow!—the shark’s age is correlated with its size (Nielsen 2016). They grow slowly (less than one centimeter per year) and reach up to over 500 centimeters (that’s over 16 feet), making them the largest fish natives in arctic waters. Greendland sharks lack calcified tissue, which is how age of sharks is normally measured. Instead, researchers collected samples from the sharks’ eye lens nuclei and applied radiocarbon dating techniques to estimate their age. They found a distinct “bomb pulse” that released radiocarbon from thermonuclear weapons in the environment in the mid-1950s. This time marker helped determine the age of the Greenland sharks born before or after the testing (Nielsen 2016). Available data and life history characteristics are limited, coupled with possible population decline mark Greenland sharks as ‘Near Threatened’ (IUCN 2006). Historically, Norway, Iceland and Greenland fished up to 32,000 Greenland sharks per year in the 1910s for their liver oil. Presently, mainly fisheries catch them as bycatch because of their large size. However, their slow growth characteristic makes them vulnerable in increasing their population. Because of their prominence as an apex predator and little known data, more research and conservation efforts need to be made to help these Greenland Sharks reach their potential age!

Looking back on Earth Week.. & I just have to say: thanks. I’ve never shared so much on the internet before, honestly, it was fun. I tried my best to keep things pretty general but informative, inspirational & motivating. A big take away from this should be that we’re all human, including me (I love yogurt (plastic free isn’t always readily available) & sometimes a long, hot shower after a rough night of work is exactly what I need), so be nice to each other.. but most importantly be nice to your Mother. If we all tried even 50% harder in our daily lives it literally would make a WORLD of a difference. So, thanks internet friends!.. & thank you, real friends & family. Your patience, acceptance, & willingness to adopt new lifestyle choices alongside me has not gone unnoticed – I love the fucking shit out of each & every one of you.

Last week I shared my 2nd grade science project with 3 kindergarten classes (56 kids!!!). My project was to prove that plastic never goes away. I buried plastic & compostable items in the earth and put them in jars of ocean water for 9 weeks. The only thing it proved was only the paper bag decomposed in the earth. Not even the ocean water. The next day, these kids refused the plastic utensils & started a riot in their cafeteria because they have plastic utensils! The teacher said they were doing metal until too many were getting thrown away. We are hoping to help them work towards going back to metal! We will keep you posted! “NO MORE PLASTIC!” #happy #earthday #nomoreplastic #savetheoceans #savethearth #helpsavesharks #reduce #reuse #recycle #educate #awareness #conservationist #bethechange #oneless #limityourimprint #oneocean #1pieceeach #sharkeducation #earthrace #ambassador @1pieceeach @kennaaloha @orphangirlfineart @treehousebooksashland @recology @jim_abernethy @oceanramsey @meliwraps @inkedqueen87 @biminisharkgirl @sharkeducation @earthrace_ @ellasavestheocean @oregoncoastaquarium @osumarinestudies @hatfieldmsc @montereybayaquarium @oneoceanconservation

This kid is bored with @maximshk ‘s tiresome excuses and I am enraged at their total disregard for facts and evidence! 😴 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Shark finning is a cruel and unsustainable practice that has put over 70 shark species at the risk of extinction. As top marine predators these magnificent animals are key to maintaining balance in the ecosystem and promote biodiversity 🐡🐟🦑🐙🐠 Yet we kill 73 million of them every year for their fins 🤦🏼‍♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @maximshk believes shark fin soup is an important ‘tradition’. Important enough to destroy our oceans?! Just because something is ‘tradition’ does not mean it’s right, what about foot binding and slavery?! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Stand up for Hong Kong, stand up for our oceans, stand up for our planet!

This was one of the most relaxed manta rays we'd ever seen, barely moving a muscle as we all swam around her. At one point we were able to swim right up in front for photos without her even flinching! These animals have the largest brain:body ratio of any other fish on the planet. Their intelligence in comparison to other fish is clear to us as humans when we interact with them - The curiousity and respect is often mutual, as they examine us swimming around with them and even mimic our body movements! ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #freedom #life #passionate #breathless #breathtaking #respect #nature #protectnature #oneocean #oneoceandiving #helpsavesharks #savetheocean #juanoliphant #oceanramsey #traveller #sharetravelpics #travelphoto #travellife #travelawesome #travelers #oceanlove #oceantherapy #bg_underwater #underwaterpig #underwaterphotography #saltnomads #goprooftheday #gopro #ig_color #outsideculture ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ @westernaustralia @australiangeographic @australiascoralcoast @ig_discover_australia @ocean @discoverocean @paditv @tourism_au @beautiful.au @australia.calling
