There’s no shortage of stories of a shark being dragged underwater by waves, of a diver being sucked underwater by the water’s surface, or of someone being dragged to the surface by the shark’s fins.
But it’s not always obvious how many of these incidents happen.
In one recent example, an Australian marine biologist who works in the area saw a shark attack a whale on a remote beach.
“The shark was about 3 metres (10 feet) long, about 3.5 metres (11 feet) wide, and I could see that it was sticking out its tail,” Dr. Matthew Renton told the ABC.
The animal was in the water for more than 20 minutes before being pulled to shore by the waves.
“They were still trying to keep the shark afloat when they came up with the idea of pulling it up by its tail.”
He said the whale was fine after it was pulled up, but when he returned to the beach, he saw that the shark had been dead.
“We were shocked and saddened that the animal that was the main focus of our shark conservation efforts had died,” he said.
“But it was a good reminder that sharks are very complex animals and that we should care for them as we care for ourselves.”
The deepwater horizon, which is located in the waters between the North and South Poles, is a popular destination for divers, because it’s shallow and it’s close to the coast.
Deepwater horizons are often tagged with a warning sign that reads: “Do not swim in the deep.”
In recent years, more people have ventured into the area to swim in and around the horizon, as well as to see what they can find in the shallow waters.
While many divers say they’re not worried about sharks, it’s the people who are taking action to protect them that are most concerned.
“It’s something that I think a lot of us do at some point, but we never really talk about it,” Renton said.
“As soon as we do, we’re like, ‘Wow, this is something that’s so amazing that we need to take care of it.'”
So that’s kind of what we do.
“The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority says the reef is being protected from the threat of shark attacks.”
This is the second year that the reef has been tagged and we’re continuing to monitor that,” the agency said in a statement.”
These tags are an integral part of our efforts to safeguard the reef from the impact of marine disturbance.
