“What if all that we have been told about sharks is wrong?”
“We will only protect what we love. And we will only protect what we understand.”
Ocean is a veritable mermaid who spends much of her time in and under water doing research and advocacy for protecting sharks, the gentle stewards of ocean abundance.
Her soft eye-to-eye and heart-to-heart interactions with sharks, along with detailed explanations on their lives and body language change our false perception of sharks as monsters to one of awe and care for gentle giants that have been on Earth longer than trees, vital for the health of our ocean ecosystems and economies serving 1 billion people.
In fact, sharks are doing surprisingly great at avoiding test bites on humans in murky waters. Yes, test bites they are, since if they wanted to eat humans, none of those peppered with bite marks would ever get out of the water, right? Fact is, we are not on their menu, they don’t like our taste.
You can swim with them, but careful: you don’t like people you don’t know or ants crawl over you, so keep respectful distance.
Only do so with mermaids like Ocean who understand their language. They trust her to a point that they remove their protective eye lid in her presence to check her out closely. Yep, Lothlorien for real.
