Our team has put a lot of effort into studying the great hammerhead sharks around Bimini together with Bimini Biological Field Station - Sharklab. The collaborative project has revealed long distance migrations along the US Florida coast, thousands of kilometers away from this small island in The Bahamas. Big questions remain around shark ecology and movements, and our team is determined to continue using their freediving abilities to contribute to shark conservation and research. While it is amazing that we have access to these sharks now and everyone can enjoy pictures of these incredible creatures, we have to be careful about the false sense of security we may get from social media. Just because you see thousands of pictures of great hammerheads, doesn't mean that there are actually thousands of great hammerheads that you can dive with or are left in our oceans. And just because there are many people diving with sharks in locations all over the world, does not mean that we know everything about them - far from it. It is hammerhead season in Bimini right now and the research efforts of Tristan Leonard Guttridge and his team at the SharkLab continue.

It is rare to see Great Hammerhead Sharks swimming at the surface and interacting with divers. With their hammer-shaped head they are perfectly adapted to hover and cruise over the sandy bottoms in the search of food, but are extremely capable to perform complicated maneuvers with sharp turns. Only the most curious and confident sharks will meet our freedivers at the surface. When they do it's always a special occasion, because these individuals come really close and don't shy away from cameras. It's a privilege to work and interact with these majestic species and help protect it for future generations. #WatermenProject #WilliamWinram #sharks #diving #freediving #bahamas #greathammerhead #hammerhead #shark #science #tagging #bimini #adventure #ocean #MakeASplash...
