  • Back to work 💙😊 It’s #TigerShark season in Hawaii 💙 While we technically have tiger sharks year round in Hawaii, they are extremely rare to see. However, at the end of August until the #HumpbackWhales arrive in late November we tend to see an increase in the number of sightings possibly due to large (possibly pregnant) females migrating down from the northwest Hawaiian islands into the main Hawaiian islands possibly to pup (give birth.) In my decade plus I find these large females to be actually extremely non confrontational.  Dr. Carl Meyers at #HIMB has been attaching satellite tags to the dorsal fins of Tiger Sharks around Hawaii and has published recordings showing this seasonal movement of female tiger sharks. Satellite and acoustic tag data allow us to prove that Tiger sharks swim past surfers, swimmers, divers, etc everyday and incidents such as bites are extremely rare. The chances of dying from a bite are even lower, astronomically lower than your chances of dying from a jellyfish sting, drowning, or death from a car accident on your way to the beach. However, if approached place your hand firmly on the top of the head of the shark, lock your elbow out and push yourself up and over and/or off to the side. Follow through with your 2nd hand to redirect the shark or yourself. Remember your best #1 way to avoid being approached it to look around and turn around constantly. Also try to minimize splashing and do not just sit there and float like a dead 🧐. Want to learn more about what to do and not to do join me and my team of shark biologists in the water @oneoceandiving or stay tuned for more info. Photo sequence by @juansharks showing me gently redirecting a large female and following through with timed careful 2nd hand placement. #HelpSaveSharks #SaveTheOcean A healthy ocean needs sharks, we need a healthy ocean for 70% of the air we breathe...To be continued...#shotoniphone Special shout out to the guys @flynn_novak @_jesseking_ And who Else?  Who helped save #JuliunPerkins who was unfortunately bit off pounders beach east Oahu. Applying a tourniquet immediately and alerting EMS is literally the most significant first responder life saving move Back to work 💙😊 It’s #tigershark season in Hawaii 💙 While we technically have tiger sharks year round in Hawaii, they are extremely rare to see.
