【新西兰生活网 nzlifenz.com】新西兰一名女海洋生物学家在在潜水时抚摸了可能怀孕的鲨鱼,她在社交媒体上发布了这一视频。

Ocean Ramsey女士在Instagram上发布了她与鲨鱼相遇的镜头,显示她在大鲨鱼面前游泳,并抚摸了鲨鱼的背和鱼鳍。当时附近还有一群潜泳者。

她很快又更新了一篇贴文,解释她这样做的背后的原因。Ocean Ramsey女士说她通常避免接触鲨鱼,但在这种情况下例外。

“当时水里还有许多不认识的人,有些人几乎不会游泳,他们穿着明亮的彩色鳍。你最好永远不要这样穿,这些太引人注目,可能会引发鲨鱼的好奇心。”

“作为一个公共安全问题,我尽力让自己处于鲨鱼与这些人之间。

“我在那里与鲨鱼相处超过了15年,我们一般都避免接触这些海洋野生动物,我们会给予它们应得的空间和尊重,并教会人们如何避免不良的相互作用。”

Some people don’t focus on the bigger picture and message so I’ll address TOUCHING to deter a great white shark away from inexperienced people. I’ve received some criticism over touching this shark from a limited perspective video angle of someone behind me so some are saying I “jumped” the shark. The truth is there were many random people in the water that I didn’t know but could see that some could barely swim and wore bright colored fins that you would never want to wear around a shark because they are eye catching and sharks can be curious. As a matter of public safety I tried my best to keep myself between the shark and these people because I didn’t want this encounter to make the news in a different way. If an accident happened the shark would be blamed and everything that I work for in conservation would take a step back. For the record I STRONGLY advise AGAINST purposely diving in the water with white sharks, or any sizable shark without a professional and very experienced guide, I would never advise to wear bright or flashy colors or splash on the surface as those things draw extra attention. I teach people through my program @oneoceandiving what to do and not to do so people can gain experience and a deeper better understanding of sharks in a safer environment because they are under the guidance of a very experienced trained shark safety professional. Given that I work in the water all day every day with sharks for over 15 years and over ten years with white sharks all around the world and I am medically trained and a professional safety officer I felt obligated to safety these people who I didn’t know. Also I always discourage people from touching sharks and we don’t allow it @oneoceandiving unless its to deter. I’d love it if the drama-bully-haters who criticize me for touching would spend the same or that or ANY energy and effort into criticizing #sharkFishermen #sharkFishing #sharkFinning #SharkFinSoup or put any effort into criticizing something that actually harms and kills sharks.
