CAPTION 🔻‼️👇 Via @jim_abernethy 
URGENT CALL TO ACTION TO HELP SHARKS!
Why is this shark smiling ? 🦈 Legislation is currently being filed in Florida to ensure the State will no longer support and participate in the global trade of shark fins, a trade that is devastating shark populations around the world at a rate that is leading to the extinction of many shark species.

The trade continues to thrive despite regulations that prohibit the act of “finning” or requirements to “land sharks whole/fins attached”. Both provisions leave the door wide open to the continued targeting of sharks for their fins, whether they are finned at sea, illegally, or finned after they are landed. Enforcement is complicated and beyond the capacity of most agencies. As long as fins can be freely sold and transported, it is nearly impossible to curb finning and the illegal fin trade.

There is little public outrage because the wholesale slaughter of sharks takes place out of sight. Most citizens are shocked to find out that their own home state enables the trade of fins. And most of them vehemently oppose this and want it stopped. Florida is surrounded by the sea and it’s tourism and fishing economy depends on the ocean. If this bill passes, the State will be a shining example for conservation and protection of sharks, rather than a passive participant in the fin trade.

In an ideal world we would follow sustainable management plans of all fisheries, around the globe. But that is unfortunately an unrealistic dream at this point. Sharks are being taken at a highly unsustainable rate and we must act with measures that are practical and enforceable, such as a prohibition on the sale and trade of shark fins.

Since Texas and all the West Coast states have banned the sale and import/export of fins, Florida has become the hub for the trade of fins in the US. By allowing this to continue, Florida is supporting the global trade of shark fins.

To show the legislature how important this issue is, we need YOUR HELP! Please click the link in @jim_abernethy‘s bio to add your name. @sharkallies @sealegacy @wildlifevoiceinc#TurningTheTide

“Sharks are one of the most threatened groups of animals on the planet,” says Gallagher. “Our organization collects info on sharks, their prey, and the ocean environment, to augment our understanding of how the ocean works, what our role as humans is in the grand scheme of things, and what we need to do in order to save the ocean.”

A nurse shark is safely released by our team after a quick work up! At the end of the video, if you look closely you can see two claspers on the underside of the shark. This is how we identify male sharks- male elasmobranch fish have evolved complex and distinctive anatomical and physiological specializations as part of their reproductive strategy. Claspers are organs that evolved from the pelvic fins to facilitate the transfer of sperm to females and are necessary for reproduction and mating. Male nurse sharks reach sexual maturity when they are around 10-15 years old and 200cm in total length while female nurse sharks reach sexual maturity a few years later. .

🇵🇭 Old Girl 🐢

Autant dire que ce genre de moments vous font oublier tous ce que pensez être des emmerdes (petite pensée pour mon D750 💀)

En général, je suis un peu sceptique quand on me dit que l’on va voir quelque chose, car tout le monde la veille à vu ça et ça blabla 💭 la dernière fois que l’on m’avait promis de voir des lamantins au Canada avec @remaggio et @bellisa.brun, on avait vu une nageoire de phoque et 3 mouettes 🌊

Bref, super moment hier où l’on a pu nager avec une tortue au large de Port Barton, près de Inoladoan Island 🏝

👨🏻‍🏫 Minute Culture ⏰
La France s’emploie grandement dans la monde à protection des fonds marins 🐙
Aux Philippines, la France, avec l’ONG Ecotone Résilience, participe à la maîtrise de l’espace maritime philippin (projet Philo-CLS), et contribue donc à la préservation de l’habitat naturel de la tortue marine 🐢 (infos Ambassade de France à Manille 🇫🇷)

Déjà que la petite tortue doit faire face à des ennemis naturels plus que nombreux dès leur naissance (on a tous vu les reportages sur les petites tortues ou, comme dans Koh Lanta, il n’en reste qu’une à la fin 🥇), le fait qu’elle doive en plus se confronter à l’homme n’est pas à son avantage ❌

Du coup, sur 1000 œufs qu’une tortue pond dans l’année, une seule tortue connaîtra l’âge adulte plus ou moins sans encombre 🤷🏻‍♂️

🇬🇧

It will be just a brief description in English due to the instagram space limitation 🤷🏻‍♂️ Yesterday was one of the most luckiest day of our trip, specially by the chance we had to swim with that 150 million years old specie, the sea (marine) turtle 🐢

It’s not only a chance because it’s a perfect animal to post a picture of on instagram, but because 6 of the 7 sea turtles species are considered as endangered ♻️

Have a nice day, bon samedi à toutes et tous et vive les turtles ✌🏻

My most favourite shark encounter yet! This hammerhead was so cruisy and spent the whole time on its side, watching us. Thanks @nicolemclachlanphoto for the epic photo! #hammerheadshark #savesharks #coralbay #ningalooreef

Via @apexharmony - ENDANGERED LOGGERHEAD TURTLE CAUGHT ON DRUMLINE

On Wednesday last week, the Apex Harmony Crew were faced yet again with the sad sight of an endangered Loggerhead turtle fighting for life after becoming hooked on a Queensland Shark Control Program drumline on Queensland's Gold Coast at Rainbow Bay.

Approaching slowly, it became apparent that this turtle was exhausted and distressed. As she surfaced for air we could see the hook caught in her lower jaw before she struggled to dive and escape.

We called the QSCP Manager who said the contractor was on the water replacing a net further north along the coast. The contractor attended about 3/4hr later.

The hook came free from the turtle's mouth as she was dragged towards the boat. This meant the turtle was not taken to a rescue centre and we understand it is rare that this happens anyway. So the welfare of this turtle is now uncertain though we did see her surface for air once after her escape.

We do not know the damage that may have been done by the hook or how she will cope after such a stressful experience.

Turtles and Dolphins often come to feed off the bait on these large hooks – put in place by the Queensland Government's Shark Control Program.

This turtle was lucky in that a Sea Shepherd crew was there to report this before it was too late, unlike hundreds of other marine animals who lose their lives to this outdated system every year.

156 turtles were caught in QSCP gear on the Gold Coast (2001-2019) and subsequently recorded as ‘alive’. Green – 23
Leatherback – 11
Loggerhead – 120
Olive Ridley – 1

As little as four were taken to care after the ordeal of having a shark hook through the mouth or other body part.
A further 17 were dead.

@oceanramsey and Haole Girl - a fantastic, unique encounter with the great white, off the Oahu coast, Hawaii. ”That movie” did so much damage to these incredible creatures. Don’t fear sharks, fight to protect them 🦈🙏🏻

@oceanramsey gently guides one of the largest documented #GreatWhiteSharks away from our @oneoceandiving shark research boat in #HAWAII #Oahu The first great white shark I ever swam with was in 2005 off my home #Haleiwa with a similarly large great #whiteshark who also rocked the boat I was on at the time working with sharks. I guess I am lucky that history repeats and not much has changed which made me confident but not complacent during this encounter but what has changed is shark populations are severely declining but for the first time ever I’ve seen this huge shift in perception in the last 5 years mostly due to imagery and the work that @oceanramsey and the team at #oneoceandiving and @oneoceandiving program and conservation and research division does (with people like @mermaid_kayleigh and @forrest.in.focus ). I hope my conservation images like this help people to question their perceptions and realize the beauty, and importance of sharks and I hope that they inspire the kind of compassion and connection we need to have with nature and sharks, to help protect them and #coexist along side them. You don’t have to love them but they do need to exist, they are absolutely critical for the health of marine ecosystems which all life relies on.
Yesterday I filled up 500gb with just photos so many more videos and photos to share from this incredible encounter that lasted al day. #grateful #helpsavesharks #savesharks #sharks #shark #discoversharks #greatwhiteshark #sealegacy #oneoceanconservation

I’m speechless!!! A BIG beautiful GREAT WHITE SHARK & rough-toothed dolphins right offshore my home #Oahu 🤙🏽🦈 I’ve been lucky enough to dive with white sharks here 4 times over the years and every year in isla Guadalupe Mexico and Australia and Africa but here, TODAY!!!!! With this big beautiful Great White has probably been my most favorite White Shark to interact with. I gently pushed her off the engines and gave her a pet as she cane under my @oneoceandiving boat for a scratch. Check out @oceanramsey for the vid and Huge props and gratitude to @camgrantphotography for this incredible image of a moment and day I will never forget. 😍🦈❤️🤙🏽 #helpsavesharks #apexpredatornotmonster #savesharks #greatwhiteshark #greatwhitesharkoahu #greatwhitesharkhawaii #oneoceandiving #divewithsharks #savesharks #savetheocean #discoversharks #respectsharks #malamamanō #alohaforsharks #oneocean #teamoneocean wetsuit @xcelwetsuits

PANCHO VILLA
Skid aka "Pancho Villa" was severely bitten by another larger white shark or at least the same size as him in September 2011. Great White Sharks bite each other by territory or hierarchies as well when mating. However, the ability to heal is breathtakingly fast. A couple of months after being bitten, the wound was almost gone. .
