#Galapagos Evolution documentary ready today on @itunes , @vimeo , @google.play.store and @amazon A team of marine wildlife ambassadors prepare themselves for a great feat. Directed by @robertoochoahe and Script and voice by @pycousteau , son of the world famous scuba diver, Jacques Cousteau, and internationally renowned free-divers show us how man and nature can reunite and co-exist with marine wildlife. They take us back to where the concept of evolution was born, the Galapagos Islands - posing the question: Can we all learn to co-exist with nature within our lifetime before we destroy it? @galapagosevolution #conservation #galapagosevolution #film #robertoochoahe #levectorfilms
Follow @sharktagging to see shark research in action and discover news facts about sharks! @sharktagging is the official IG account of the University of Miami's Shark Research & Conservation Program (SRC), directed by marine ecologist Dr. Neil Hammerschlag @drneilhammer . Caption by @sharktagging Here at @umiamirsmas, we have the unique opportunity to study a number of shark species right in our backyard! We at SRC conduct science centered broadly on food-web dynamics and the behavioral ecology, conservation biology, and movement ecology of marine predators, both around Miami and at other locations across the globe. Learn more about our research and find out how you can get involved by visiting our website, sharktagging.com (link in bio)!

Via @galen.neil Pancake shark! (Yes I’m about to eat breakfast.) Stingrays are actually very closely related to sharks, in fact, they’re basically flat sharks. Their skeletons are made of cartilage, they have 5-7 gill slits, and rely on the ampullae of Lorenzini, which are special sensing organs called electroreceptors. No the sharks aren’t swimming upside down, that’s just the reflection
Words by @juansharks Screaming Mimi making waves. This large white shark was incredibly impressive to watch outsmart the bait handlers. She would approach from the same direction 3 or even 6 times to get the bait handlers to relax and than from a completely new direction blast out of the water surprising everyone and running away with the bait. The level of intelligence and awareness that Screaming Mimi applies to adapting to a completely unnatural environment is amazing. This is a shot of her re-entering the water after a big breach. Intelligent and cautious not a mindless monster. #coexist
