Oubliez Les Dents de la mer. Au large des côtes de Freeport aux Bahamas, au sud de la Floride, un plongeur nage au milieu des requins tout à fait normalement, sans protections, et osant même parfois les toucher et les caresser.

Il utilise une boîte remplie de poissons morts pour les attirer. Ce sont alors plusieurs espèces qui viennent à sa rencontre et nagent autour de lui dans un ballet saisissant.

Au mois de janvier, une équipe de plongeurs avait nagé au côté d’une femelle requin blanc de 6 m de long  en gestation, au large d’Hawaï. Posté sur Instagram, le cliché avait fait le tour du monde.



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.

« C’était juste un beau gros et gentil colosse qui voulait utiliser notre bateau pour se gratter », avait affirmé la plongeuse professionnelle et spécialiste des requins, qui milite pour leur protection.
