I love this shot of #NikkiTheTigerShark

tucked in close to my left behind the camera. Large species of sharks, like tiger sharks are vital to our oceans ecosystems as they keep the natural mortality in a range of prey in balance. 🐢 Turtles, marine mammals and small elasmobranchs (sharks, skates and rays) have very few other predators, so without sharks their abundance, distribution and behaviour is affected, causing a cascade of changes throughout the marine food web. Having recently seen the documentary @bluethefilm2017
it brought to light again the number of struggles our ocean faces on a daily basis, and reinforced in my mind how important it is that we continue to educate each other about these issues. #stayinformed
- as consumers, our decisions impact the environment every single day. Dreaming of encounters like this with @oneoceandiving
