It’s another #snowyowl irruption. Although not as big of an irruption like 2014, there are still quite a few of these owls around with more to come!

People often say that those (humans) with the biggest mouths are often the weakest; however, I don’t think that applies to this god damn savage.

Ahhh, the Hammerhead - This majestic creature is quite possibly our favorite shark to share the water with! Most Hammerhead species have pretty similar-looking heads, except for the Scoophead, the Bonnethead and the Scalloped Bonnethead. The heads of these sharks look more like the end of a #shovel than a #hammer. Share an awesome #sharky fact that you know with us! #shark #hammerhead #blackandwhite #funsharkfacts #teachfascinationnotfear #sharkfun #diving #sharkdiving #sharkresearch #conservationcrew #divein #attacklife #fishing #underwaterphotography @thesharkdoctor @oseasfdn

It’s sad to think that one day these incredible icons may be gone forever. We must do whatever we can to ensure these beautiful giants don’t become the newest member of the 6th mass extinction. #extinctionisforever #elephants #africa #kruger #krugernationalpark #southafrica #antipoaching #oseas #conservationcrew

The best part of our job is inspiring amazing new shark scientists and conservationists! Look at how far this guy has come, from being one of our initial #SharkCampers to now an amazing #mate who is an undergraduate @ Coastal Carolina University for a degree in #marinebiology. Even though looks like we need to teach him a thing or too about #fishing for sharks and bluefish.

Although bearing a striking resemblance to my beautiful wife (@nikconocon muahahahaha - just kidding), this is actually a southern ground hornbill that I photographed in #krugernationalpark. This beautiful bird can reach almost 4ft in height. While forming groups of anywhere between 2-11 birds, there is typically only one breeding pair per group that lays just one to two eggs once every nine years! Unfortunately due to this reproductive strategy and many human-caused (anthropogenic) sources of mortality, its numbers aren’t very good - earning its vulnerable status on the #IUCN Red List.

Such a dynamic photo - absolutely gorgeous and surreal depicting the true beauty of these animals. Sometimes if you look beneath the surface you can find the truth. Don’t just believe whats in front of you - you truly have to dive in !!

#GIVINGTUESDAY - We appreciate all your support !
CHECK OUT OUR 1 DAY FUNDRAISER ON OUR FACEBOOK PAGE - O’SEAS CONSERVATION FOUNDATION - @OSEASFDN
SHARK CAMP is an incredible opportunity for 8th-12th grade youth that not only peels them away from their phones and the TV, but gets them fully immersed in shark conservation research alongside Shark Week's Dr. Craig O'Connell in Montauk, NY. From boat navigation to tagging great white sharks, this experience is one that our team fully believes will help inspire our youth towards a positive and conservation-oriented future.
We are asking for donations so we can add an exciting NEW and EDUCATIONAL activity to this Shark Camp. This year, we are modifying our Shark Camp so our campers can DIVE with SAND TIGER SHARKS at the Long Island Aquarium. We feel that there is no better way to learn about sharks than to share water with them - so by helping us raise funds to accommodate this activity, we are ensuring that these youth get the experience of a lifetime and get numerous steps closer to their dream of becoming a Marine Biologist!

As we near the completion of our data analysis for 2017, we are proud to announce that we have now positively identified 25 different YOY-Juvenile #whitesharks that temporarily call #montauk their beautiful home! Woohoo! Also, for all of you out there that actually read this - our #SharkCamp registration has opened up for 2018! So if you want to sign your son or daughter up - check out the Shark Camp link at www.oseasfdn.org!

As I mentioned earlier, these #whitesharks often continue their pursuit and change their approach until they succeed and get the bait. Although we do not actively feed these white sharks as they circle our boat, sometimes they outsmart us and win.

Wise words “This was my first experience in the field of #sharkresearch. It was disheartening and what is important for many to recognize is that keeping a shark like this alive is far more economically beneficial than killing it. The future lies in green practices, such as ecotourism (e.g. tours, diving) and if we don’t take the proper strides towards conserving these critically important species, the “bounty” provided by our oceans will be lost forever. “

Whenever I photograph #whitesharks, it is hard not to focus on their iconic teeth...but sometimes I wonder if just a simple photograph of them gracefully swimming around may not only be a more accurate depiction of their nature, but also a means to help reduce fear. …but these animals are just too impressive so I guess an occasional photograph of their lovely and toothy smile is ok :). #sharkweek #sharks @oseasfdn #oseas #conservationcrew #pearlywhites #greatwhite #whiteshark #liveyourdream #southafrica #gansbaai #sharkalley #naturephotography #nature #wildlife @wildlifeplanet #wildlifephotography

While in Chatham, I saw quite a few gray seals! Some were much smaller than others, and some were a bit more curious than others. These seals are true seals and lack external ear flaps and characteristically have large snouts.
Now, do you think this is a male or a female? Here are some hints: Males tend to be darker than females (but here you have no reference) and oftentimes scarring around the neck. Females are silver/grey to brown with some dark patches.

@Regranned from @sharkweek - @TheSharkDoctor: "You often watch for hours and nothing, but then there is a massive explosion at the surface and it’s game on. While going out on eco-tours, there is nothing better than watching the clients’ reactions as they see their first #whiteshark. At that very moment, you can see how their outlook of these beautiful predators changes from fear to passion.
