#Repost @shawnheinrichs IT’S NOT TOO LATE - A quarter of all shark species are at risk of extinction, 100 million or more sharks are removed from the oceans every year and many of the largest species have seen their populations decline by 90 percent or more.While there is still much to be learned about sharks and their importance to a marine ecosystem, what we do know indicates that losing sharks could be devastating for the oceans and people. As keystone species, studies have shown sharks play important roles in both the middle and top of the food web likely influencing the health of coral reefs.Thankfully, the world is starting to wake-up to the crisis facing sharks. At the upcoming Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (@CITES), the only international treaty with binding provisions upon member nations to protect threatened and endangered species from unsustainable trade in their body parts, a record-breaking number of countries have offered their support to protect 18 species of sharks and rays (mako sharks, wedgefish and giant guitarfish) that are quickly disappearing from the world’s oceans.  Will the nations of the world hear the overwhelming evidence that Makos need protection and take a stand for them, or will pressure from powerful fisheries lobbyists and commercial greed let makos slide quietly toward extinction? It is time we join together and END THE WAR ON SHARKS.🦈💙🦈 #cites4sharks #turningthetide #worthmorealive #cop18sharks @vulcaninc @sealegacy @sharkconservationfund @thewcs

#Repost @jessaddwater Beautiful animals, sad news (please read entire post): Today, IUCN announced that #RhinoRays are the most threatened group of marine fishes on the planet. This is a result of #overfishing and if we don’t stop trade in their meat and fins, get better fisheries management and enact well-placed MPAs now, extinction is not just possible, but likely. These animals are now Critically Endangered..These shark-like #rays are wedgefishes and giant guitarfish (16 species across two families). Their meat and fins are consumed both as a source of protein and as a delicacy..Believe it or not, these animals have not yet been listed by the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES), which is responsible for controlling international trade in their parts. CITES is meeting in early August to make a decision on these species and others. Listing them on CITES will be a good step toward a recovery plan, but of course country and community-level action is also required..Please share this post and spread the word..Ironically, I saw my very first shovelnose ray last week on @heronisland in Australia, inside of a no-take MPA. I hovered above, snapping a few photographs. I was there as part of a small group working to maximize benefits to sharks and rays from marine protected areas (MPAs). Australia is managing them well and may represent an important lifeboat for a few species of rhino rays..Thanks to the incredible team @shark_specialist_group for conducting these important analyses and to @sharkconservationfund for supporting their work and our #sharkrayMPA workshop..#criticallyendangered #conservation #fisheriesmanagement #MPA #rhinidae #glaucostegidae #sharks #rays #fishing #responsibleconservation

#Repost @shawnheinrichs MIGHTY MAKO - a magnificent being that lives in the high seas, rarely crosses paths with humans and if it does, tends to avoid them.Given the precipitous declines in their populations over the past few decades, they have far more to fear from us, than us from them. In August, world governments will consider listing a record number of seriously at-risk shark and ray species, including makos, on Appendix II of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (@CITES). @bluespherefoundation @sealegacy and @vulcaninc are supporting an unprecedented push with key countries to gain the two-thirds majority needed for their inclusion.It's time we take a hard look at our beliefs, seek out the truth to reshape our beliefs, and take action to support the conservation of these magnificent creatures, and all the other species that are racing towards extinction by our very hands.🙏💙🌊💚••••••#regram @thelifeofrileynz // MAKO + @shawnheinrichs = dream for meAs you well know, Mako sharks are the major species I work with.

What's odd is this is me on the @reddigitalcinema space ship of a camera. A rare occurrence. Why? Because unfortunately Mako were recently declared endangered and that's why Shawn came for a visit. I could not believe he had never seen a Mako alive. I have followed his work for years, one of the rare people who walks the walk without ever having to talk the ego talk. He came to NZ to collaborate on a project to be released soon, to try and help these amazing creatures get protection through an upcoming @cites convention. Good karma delivered us the most amazing animals I have ever had. He was blown away, and a special guest we took out @trav_boyd had his perspective totally flipped around.

#Repost @natgeo Photo by Thomas Peschak @thomaspeschak | The waters around the northern Galápagos islands of Wolf and Darwin are a shark paradise, and one of the few places in the world where mature whale sharks make regular appearances. In the depths off Darwin’s Arch, six-foot silky sharks are dwarfed as they rub up against 30-foot (plus) giants to dislodge parasites. Photographing this unique behavior while free diving was incredibly challenging; the currents were ripping like a freight train and whale sharks are fast, strong swimmers.

Congrats to @OceanX and team! Excited to learn more about these incredible sharks! Repost · · ·#wedidthat. Last night, #oceanx and partners @ceibahamas and @fsumarinelab became the first group to tag a shark from a submersible. It was our last chance on our last night after one dive where the tag bounced off, one night where no sharks showed up, and one night where a large grouper tagged itself instead (😂). Dr. Dean Grubbs, the lead scientist on this mission, is the first scientist to ever tag a bluntnose sixgill with a satellite tag, but up until last night had only been able to do so by bringing them up to the surface. Because bluntnose sixgills are a deep-sea species, it's hard on them physiologically to be tagged in this way. Now that we've proven this method can work for deep sea species like the sixgill, we can unlock the world of leviathan deep-sea dwellers and gain important insights into their  movement and behavior. The successful shot was fired by geneticist Gavin Naylor, with expert piloting from sub team mission leader Lee Frey and filming by Janssen Powers. The tag will pop to the surface and transmit all that precious data in about three months. Needless to say the mood on #alucia is ecstatic right now. Thanks for wishing us all those sharks last night! Achieved through our partnership @bloombergdotorg and their Vibrant Oceans Initiative. .
