Shark!

Did that get your attention?

There has been a lot of media attention surrounding sharks recently, starting with that terrifying footage of Mick Fanning and a number of incidents on the NSW north coast. Following on from these incidents there have been calls from a very vocal minority of ocean users to ramp up efforts in shark control measures. It should come as no surprise that I don’t support lethal methods of shark control. As far as I’m concerned there are much bigger risks in life than the threat of being bitten by a shark. If we wish to enjoy the ocean we should know the risks and accept that we share this wonderful environment with these apex predators. However, with all of the media hype, it’s easy to forget that we also share the ocean with some other amazing animals, which is what I though I’d share today.

The beauty of the ocean never ceases to amaze me.

  1. Just beautiful! Did you take all the photos? And if so, where abouts did you spot the weedy? 🙂

    1. Hi There Oddorganism! Thanks for reading. Yes I did take these photos. They are from various places in the pacific, but the weedy is from Jervis Bay in NSW.
