Il più grande squalo bianco mai fotografato

più grande squalo bianco

Queste fotografie hanno già fatto il giro del mondo, ma ve le riportiamo qui su Objects. Perché l’oceano, i suoi abitanti e anche gli squali in particolare, sono tutti temi che condividiamo spesso con piacere.

Lo scorso 15 gennaio, nei pressi di Oahu, Hawaii, un team di sommozzatori ha avuto un incontro decisamente singolare e straordinario. Si sono imbattuti in un gigantesco squalo bianco femmina, probabilmente il più grande mai fotografato.

Un esemplare lungo 6,5 metri e dal peso stimato di 2 tonnellate. L’incontro è avvenuto in messo al mare delle Hawaii, il grande squalo bianco si è avvicinato alla loro barca e senza esitare un secondo, diversi membri del team, tra cui i fotografi e subacquei Ocean RamseyJuan Oliphant si sono buttati insieme a lui.

Queste immagini sono pazzesche non c’è che dire. Grazie mille a questi fotografi per averle regalate al mondo intero. E per aver dimostrato che gli squali non sono assassini ne creature cattive mangia-uomini, ma splendidi animali che anzi vanno tutelati e protetti.

#Jaws was a fictitious film whose poster kind of looks like this, so this is my effort at an Anti-Jaws type media piece @savingjawsmovie . I’ve been swimming with sharks my whole life and working professionally with them for over 15 years. There’s a challenge I have in my efforts, to find a balance between helping people to overcome their fear of sharks that often stems for fictitious demonizing media and instilling a healthy level of respect for sharks as very capable apex predators #ApexPredatorNotMonster not puppy (cause if you pet puppies often even puppies bite, actually a lot ;)). Having worked with sharks for so long I can fully appreciate what they are capable of because I have been rushed by sharks and had to deter them and I have had to leave the water and I have watched them actively predate and compete for space and have confrontations.  However, I’ve also had the most incredible moments of my life in the water with them where 99.9% of the time they cruise gracefully around and so long as I keep looking around and pay attention constantly and quietly and give respect and attention to the more dominant individuals and challenging juveniles on a CONSTANT bases I am treated as more or less an equal predator.  Never complacent, always respectful and adapting at every second to every movement. I reached the point long ago where I dedicated my life to conservation and I love it, I love educating people about sharks and introducing them to them in a professional guided situation through the program I co-founded @oneoceandiving where we also collect data @oneoceanresearch @oneoceansharks and help support conservation through @Oneoceanconservation and @OneoceanEducation and @Oneoceanglobal @Waterinspired @oneoceanhawaii and other with funds from @oneoceandesigns and diving I love studying shark behavior and body language and its an absolute pleasure to share that with people and help them to better appreciate sharks and I hope inspire them to help save them.  Check out http://HelpSaveSharks.Org for more ways to get involved. #Aloha #hawaii #greatWhiteHawaii #SaveTheOcean #ocean #discoversharks #oneoceanconservation #OneOceanDiving PHOTO CREDIT @juansharks ❤️

Post via @oceanramsey Disclaimer: I highly discourage people from jumping into the water purposely with Great #WhiteSharks and TigerSharks and all sharks should be given respect as space as wild animals and PROTECTION from wasteful killing for their important ecological role. I work daily in the water with sharks as a shark biologist and teach public and professional safety programs through @OneoceanResearch and @OneOceanDiving and through a number of our international projects which also includes #greatWhiteShark research specifically. I try hard to replace fear with scientific facts and encourage a healthy level of respect for sharks as #apexPredatorsNotMonsters but not puppies…but not monsters. They are sharks and I love and respect them for what they are. Yes I absolutely LOVE sharks and have a deep understanding and respect for their capabilities combined with well over a decade of full time experience working in-water with them.  My life mission, passion, and I think purpose is to help further conservation efforts for them through research, conservation, design, and immersive and impactful programs and outreach. Please check out all the divisions of #OneOceanDiving listed below for more information and please help us to ban #sharkfinning #sharkfishing #sharksportfishing and #sharkculling around the world. I just found out the the bill to ban the purposeful killing of sharks and rays in Hawaii will be re-introduced this year in both eh house and senate following all the positive shark press that has come from this incredible encounter in the last few days. Mahalo nui loa (thank you) to all those who support efforts for shark and marine conservation. #gratitude #helpsavesharks #finbannow #sharkarma #savesharks #Sharkconservation #sharkresearch.

By @oceanramsey “What it’s like to lock eyes with a great white as it slowly and directly approaches me is a feeling I’ve been fortunate to experience many times before but how’s the rough toothed dolphin escort too 😱❤️🦈❤️ I can’t say enough about the importance of sharks for healthy marine ecosystems, for the ocean, we need sharks and yet, perhaps because of the negative and inaccurate way they are portrayed in mass media many people do not care that they are being killed at a rate of 70,000,000-100,000,000 every year! What’s worse, they are killed mostly just for #sharkfinsoup or for #sharkfishing as #sharksportfishing I would encourage you to take a look at the above hashtags and see the cruelty and waste and compare it to this reality of peaceful and respectful coexistence. #helpsavesharks #savetheocean I do not encourage people to do this. I’ve been working with sharks for over 15 years, over 30 species including white sharks all around the world. They are #apexpredatornotmonster not puppies...but this was the gentlest grandma great #whiteshark ive ever met ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Deepest gratitude for my team and the incredible shot I will cherish forever @camgrantphotography Freediving this morning with @oneoceandiving #oneoceanohana @juansharks ❤️ @mermaid_kayleigh 💙 @forrest.in.focus 🌅🦈 @oneoceanhawaii @waterinspired @oneoceanconservation @oneoceaneducation @oneoceanglobal @travelcoffeeandsharks @discoversharks Fins @cressi1946 #tigersharkwetsuit by @xcelwetsuits 💙🦈💙 #greatwhitehawaii #divewithsharks #greatwhitesharks #oceanramsey #oneoceandiving #ocean #sharks #instagram #instagood #today #amazing #beautiful #madeofocean #teamoneocean “

FREEDIVING WITH GREAT WHITE SHARK IN HAWAII 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍I’m clutching my hand to my heart in this video screen grab because I think my heart just stopped from pure joy, gratitude, happiness, amazement.....I LOVE SHARKS!!!!! and they are so much more incredible than most could possibly imagine!!!! I work with sharks all day everyday all around the world with @oneoceanresearch and @oneoceandiving Today off my home waters of #Oahu , #Hawaii : Freediving with this Gorgeous gentle giant who might be shark ID “Deep Blue” Who I’ve seen in Isla Guadalupe as well was absolutely magical. Deep Blue came up and brushed up against the boat, maybe she’s pregnant, maybe she’s itchy? Rough-toothed dolphins escorted her in the morning . Many of my team @oneoceandiving was there to share the experience and as myself and @juansharks @mermaid_kayleigh and @forrest.in.focus and @camgrantphotography headed out together at sunrise we never would’ve expected what an Incredible Shark we would meet, we spent the entire day with her till the sun went down. #HelpSaveSharks You’re so important for the ocean and so many people don’t know that it would be so sad that they would disappear before people get to experience and know them for their true beauty and importance. Learn about sharks join me and my incredible team in the water @oneoceandiving Off #haleiwa almost everyday as we study and survey shark populations and teach people how to interact in a respectful and safe manner ❤️🦈❤️ Photo from screen grab vid shot by my AMAZING seaster/One Ocean Safety Diver/Shark Specialist @mermaid_kayleigh #sharkoprah Written by @oceanramsey #greatwhitesharkhawaii #greatwhitesharkdeadwhale #deadwhalehawaii #greatwhitesharkoahu #sharks #shark #savesharks #helpsavesharks #discoversharks #discoverocean #oceanramsey #oceanramseygreatwhite #swimwithsharks #freedivingwithgreatwhite #girlswimmingwithgreatwhite #sharksinhawaii #oneoceandiving
