Shark conservationist Ocean Ramsey was recently filmed swimming with a Great White shark in the waters of Hawaii. During the minute long video she is seen caressing the large shark, as well as grabbing its fin to hitch a ride through the ocean. As an advocate for shark preservation, Ramsey purposefully released her footage swimming with the massive shark on St. Valentine’s Day to express her love for the magnificent creatures.
Ramsey wrote in a posting to waterinspired.com that states; “many people fear sharks and have unfortunately seem them portrayed on TV and in films as mindless man-eating machines. In truth, sharks are intelligent, calculated, and generally very cautious about approaching humans.” By releasing the video, she hopes to bring awareness to much needed shark conservation efforts and goes on to state the vital role that sharks play in maintaining a healthy ocean ecosystem.
