Shark researcher @johann_mourier about to release a young lemon shark in the shallows of moorea after measuring and sampling it for dna study. coastal nursery grounds are very important for shark populations, with waterfront and coastal areas development these habitat are at great threat.

Group of mobula rays cruising over princess alice bank offshore faial island in the middle of atlantic ocean. every year they are back for the whole summer. not much is known about them but thanks to tagging programs we start to understand a bit more how they live.

Underwater landscape of port cros national park in france. for more than 40 years that marine protected area is one of the best ecosystem of the mediterranean sea. the med is in a very bad state due the ever growing human impact and mpa like port cros are crucial to save it from being a totally dead zone.

Large cow shark in the kelp forest. cow sharks are amongst the most ancient form of sharks, they are very close to their ancestors from 400 millions years ago. you’d be tempted to say that they aren’t that evolved then...? well in fact they are so functional that somehow they didn’t need to evolve much more... despite their goofy appearance and moves they are highly skilled predators that can even take down fast sea lions!
