Black Swan

I came across this amazing video today  at work, and thought you might like to see it. Freediver Julie Andersen dancing with an oceanic white-tip, frequently called the ‘most dangerous shark in the world’.

There’s been so much rubbish said and written about sharks and initiatives like the WA Shark Cull are prime examples of our irrational fears made flesh. These acts of mindless killing (which are unlikely to work) lead to terrible consequences in the real world for individual animals, and entire populations. Sharks are essential components of the marine ecosystem. Widespread hunting and finning operations threaten populations all over the world and as such, all life in the oceans. Sharks are NOT naturally dangerous to humans, as this video demonstrates, humans are NOT their natural prey.
