We love this message from @shark__addict: "Sharks are without a doubt one of the coolest creatures to live, period. Sadly, many people thrive off the media and opinions of others and think negatively of sharks. In fact, 700 people worldwide are killed every year by toasters. The United States alone has 300 toaster-related deaths. Most of the deaths are the result of electrical shock from sticking a knife into the slots to remove jammed toast. That is 175 times more deaths from toasters than from shark attacks. So, #fearthetoastersnotthesharks #respectthefin #letlive #savesharks #teachfascinationnotfear #conservationcrew #oseas

When I closed my eyes and heard the characteristic ‘burping’ vocalization that the #Madagascar bright-eyed #frog makes, I knew it was close by. As we got closer and closer to it, I caught a glimpse of it and was able to snap a quick photograph before it hopped away. This beautiful baseball-sized frog is quite common in #andisibe-mantadia #NationalPark and was another one of the unique animals that I was fortunate enough to see. #frogs #instagood #picoftheday #natgeoyourshot #natgeowild #damn #natgeo #nature #naturephotography #wildlife #rainforest #andasibe #vakona #vakonaforestlodge #nationalparks #oseas #conservationcrew #canon #canonphotography

About 10 years ago, I got to spend a week in the #Galapagos with Nikki for a study abroad course. On one of our last days, I was on the beach watching this #sealion pup and jokingly, I said pose for the camera. When I did, the god damn thing did this! :) #natureisamazing #oseas #conservationcrew #conservation #galapagosreserve #liveyourdream #natgeo #sharkweek #discovery

All of our hard work with the Sharksafe barrier has finally led to the development of a viable technology that CAN serve as a successful and eco-friendly alternative to the detrimental beach nets and drumlines. This non-lethal and alternative technology is a way to facilitate the peaceful coexistence between humans and sharks and we hope that it will soon be adopted by local governments to eliminate the unnecessary mortality associated with their current lethal measures. Thank you @daniel_botelho_photography for the stunning photo!

A black-and-white ruffed lemur is chilling at the entrance of Andasibe-Mantadia National Park. Seeing these #lemurs was quite a treat, but with the current rate of deforestation in #Madagascar, seeing a wild lemur may soon be a thing of the past. #conserve #nature #wildlife #antananarivo #madagaskar #instagood #picoftheday #canon #canonphotography #5diii #70200mm #nationalpark #loveyourdreams #oseas #conservationcrew #animals #animal #rainforest #coexist #sustainability

I couldn’t sleep while in #Madagascar because of all the incredible animals that were around me. Each night and just outside of my bungalow, I would come across these beautiful #daygeckos that strategically placed themselves so they can pick off all the bugs that were attracted to the light by my front door. These stunning #lizards were so much fun to watch and photograph!

The #key to #conservation is not just changing the perceptions of people who are causing harm, but it is also supporting and learning from like minded individuals who are paving the way with their incredible skills and talent. This guy is incredibly talented and we are so lucky to have worked beside him while doing research in Bimini, Bahamas. #GreatHammerhead conservation is crucial and this photo credit goes to the legendary @60poundbullet , Grant Johnson

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."
— by Steve Jobs

We are inspired every day by the new and innovative projects brought forth by our Founder, Dr. Craig O’Connell. Hard work and determination has always helped our team move forward and we look forward to exciting new conservation project in 2018 with your support!

@TheSharkDoctor: "I’ve worked with #GreatHammerhead #sharks for the past several years in #Bimini #Bahamas. Some of this work involved the use of #laserphotogrammetry paired with dorsal photo-identification to reliably identify, re-identify, and measure sharks over subsequent years. In addition, our most recent work looked into the various sensory modalities used in #hammerhead foraging, which will be work that we will get to share with you very shortly!
While conducting these projects, I often got the opportunity to dive and interact with these beautiful #hammerhead #sharks. On one particular day, a nice chunk of barracuda slipped out of our chum box. As I reached for the bait, this shark cautiously approached and eventually came in close enough for a taste. Although I never condone hand-feeding sharks as it can be incredibly dangerous, this particular moment was a moment I will never forget because I was able to see the selectivity, power, curiosity, and intelligence of these animals within a few brief seconds of interaction." @Cressi1946 #SharkWeek #Discovery #oseas #conservationcrew #liveyourdreams

@thesharkdoctor: "Over the past 8-9 years, I have been diligently working to find a non-lethal alternative that would be an eco-friendly replacement for the detrimental shark nets that are used in areas such as #SouthAfrica and #Australia. This passion led to the development of the #Sharksafe barrier, a technology that integrates both visual (i.e. artificial kelp) and magnetic (i.e. permanent magnets) stimuli to deter #sharks away from a region. After substantial collaboration with @oseasfdn, @SharkProject, @SharkDivingUnlimited, @TarongaZoo, @StellenboschUni and many more organizations, we were able to make this project transition from a dream to a reality.
In 2017, we published one of our final research studies that illustrated that our newly designed Sharksafe Barrier exclusion square can successfully exclude #whitesharks from bait! Thank you @DanielBotelho for taking some incredible photographs to help tell our story - we are honored to have you as our #Sharksafe barrier photographer! We hope that in the very near future, our non-invasive system will be adopted as a successful and non-lethal alternative to shark nets!

So I had a bit of fun with these beautiful #blacktip reef #sharks at night. They were very skittish and it took awhile to get them to come close enough but as you can see, these are stunning, quick, inquisitive, and hydrodynamic animals. Can anyone spot any unique body language in these short clips? Being able to read these signals is often the best way to safely swim with sharks, both large and small. Stay tuned as I will have a much longer clip on the way! @sharkmagazine @shark_vibes @sharks_are_awesome1 @sharkservation @oseasfdn @scubadivingmag @tuamotus @sharksdaily @cressi1946 @shark_lovers_of_insta #sharkweek #cressi #conservationcrew #oseas #tahiti #frenchpolynesia🇵🇫 #discovery

Doing research in new places and teaching the locals about the importance of shark conservation is the best holiday present! It was insanely hard work but we are so excited that our #sharkconservation and #sharkresearch in #Tikehau went off without a hitch. #sicklefin #lemonshark
Hope everyone is having a great holiday season. We can not wait to see what next year brings.
