With the great vis yesterday, our shark conservation volunteers got a good view of the passing sharks from the cage.

It's the shweekend! Alba and I are watching BBC's Planet Earth with breakfast and the white sharks are breaching. She says 'is that your movie mummy?'. Uuuhhhh, not quite but here's my breach from the other day captured on @gopro. She's still pretty impressed 😊

Face to face with a huge school of Jacks so large that it almost blocks out the sun. 🐟🐟🐟☀️Unfortunately sights like this are becoming harder and harder to find, as industrial fishing fleets often take more than the ocean can sustainably support in order to supply the increasing demand for protein of an exponentially growing human population. #EatLessMeat #MeatlessMondays Many sharks are also caught unintentionally in these fisheries as #bycatch. 53% of the world’s fisheries are fully exploited, and 32% are overexploited, depleted, or recovering from depletion (FAO 2016). The removal of sharks and other apex predators from the ecosystem can further exacerbate these declines, and can result in unpredictable or unforeseen consequences. Intuitively one might think less predators would result in an increase in prey populations, but it’s not that straightforward. Sharks act as the white blood cells of the sea, picking off the weak, sick and overpopulated controlling trophic levels below them. Without their presence disease can spread throughout the entire school, or animals lower on the food chain can multiply without top down control leading to the depletion of resources. There is actually a very close correlation between the presence of sharks and healthy fish stocks. Healthy oceans have healthy shark populations! #HelpSaveSharks #WorthMoreAlive

The female in the bottom right is exhibiting a behavioural trait called RAG (repetitive aerial gaping). There's a whole bunch of theories as to why sharks do this.. ranging from displays of dominance, to frustration, to even cleaning themselves. But until scientists figure their shit out I'm just going to keep referring to it as the 'stepped on a lego piece' look. Somebody please give me a PHD now, thanks.

Ready for the #StateFarmRun tomorrow morning! We shall #run for #sharks 🦈 There are actually appropriately 5709 sharks killed every HALF hour, but I thought our bib numbers were pretty close! 🤘🏽 #tenmiles #savesharks #irunfortracy #1mile #Tiki #nosharkfinsoup #lovehim #educatethetourists <----FYI that's us #landlocked peeps so pay attention friends! #protect #preserve #reduce #bekind

Oceanic white tip sharks (Carcharhinus longimanus) are easily recognized by the white tips on their fins and their very long pectoral fins. Fittingly, longimanus translates from Latin as "long hands" Unfortunately their large sized fins make them even more vulnerable to the shark finning industry. Shark finning and bycatch are the biggest reasons for the depletion of sharks, and this species has declined by an alarming rate of 99% over the past several decades. You can help them by submitting  comments electronically or by mail by March 29th! Please visit @oneoceanconservation, link is in the bio with more information on how you can make a difference and save this iconic species!

Incredible photo by the Juan and only @JuanSharks. A curious Sandbar shark comes in for a closer look as the sun sets on the north shore of Oahu. Sandbar sharks are nocturnal benthic feeders meaning they mainly feed on the sea floor at night. This species is present in coastal waters in tropical and temperate regions, although their numbers have declined by as much as 99% in some areas such as the east coast of the U.S. due to heavy fishing pressure. This species has a species specific palate, and their diet depends on prey availability within the region. In Hawaii Sandbar sharks are known to consume teleosts (bony fish), cephalopods and crustaceans. Prey diversity increases with size, and as Sandbar sharks mature they shift from feeding mainly on crustaceans to include cephalopods and even small elasmobranchs (Mcelroy et al. 2006).
