Brave Divers Remove Hooks From Sharks

A diver sedates a shark by flipping it upside down to remove a hook protruding from its mouth. Friends Cameron Nimmo and Randy Jordan have made it their mission to help sharks that have been pierced with fishing hooks and remove them from their mouths, noses, and bodies. The hooks are often left in the sharks after being caught and released by fishermen. The pair, who go by the name Shark Addict

Dolphin Stampede Overtakes Whale Watching Boat

A huge pod of about 1,000 Common Dolphins stampeded off the coast of Dana Point, California, like a herd of wild horses. This has happened twice recently though it is very rare. The line of wild dolphins could be seen from miles away churning up the water and, to the delight of whale watching passengers and crew aboard Captain Dave’s Dolphin and Whale Safari, the dolphins turned and stampeded

Woman Was Sitting on Her Kayak in a Bay When.. wow holy crap…..

While kayaking in Monterey Bay and watching a huge raft of sea lions that had come up right in front of these kayakers , a bus-sized humpback whale suddenly rose up out of the water only 10 feet from one of their boats. It was making a b-line toward the boat. Humpbacks are graceful and fully aware of their size and of their surroundings, so the kayaker wasn’t scared (at first) but was certainl

As Something Swam Up To Our Boat, NOTHING Prepared Us For What Came Next. INCREDIBLE!!!

I cannot believe this!! For most boaters, it’s the thrill of a lifetime to see a whale up close and personal. Judging by this video, it’s just a thrill for some whales to see people, too! While swimming through Mexico’s San Ignacio Lagoon, a gray whale calf and his mom approached a boat filled with tourists. As the tourists reached over the side to try and touch the whale, the mother li

Massive grouper fish eats five foot shark in one bite

I wasn’t familiar with the Grouper fish before I saw this video, so it’s good to know there’s yet another sea creature out there that could swallow a human whole. YouTube user Gimbb14 was fishing off the coast Bonita Springs, Florida, when he managed to snag a five foot long black tip shark. Sadly, the ocean is a cruel mistress, and she didn’t think this particular fisherman was wo

‘Salmon Cannon’ Allows Safe Migration Around Hydroelectric Dams

While hydroelectric dams are able to generate electricity without coal or oil, they act as obstacles for wildlife, and migrating salmon in particular. When salmon are ready to reproduce, they migrate from the sea back upstream into rivers, where they spawn on gravel beds. Swimming upstream requires the ability to fight against obstacles including rapids and up over drop-offs. Traditional ladders f

Shark Week Is Lying To People Again

Almost 40 years on, scientists and conservationists are still picking up the pieces from the iconic movie “Jaws” that led the world to believe that sharks are ferocious man eaters. Sparked by fear and the idea that shark catching is “sexy,” numerous species experienced a worrying decline as man started to belligerently hunt and kill them. So why is it that, once again, the Discovery Chan
