The footage contained in this video is the closest white shark encounter involving kids I've captured thus far. With signs placed on the beach, groups of people still venture out for a swim. Like most encounters, the sharks are not phased and they show no real interest in the humans. Additionally, recent actions by some humans could pose a threat to beach goers. I've documented humans behaving rather irresponsibly around white sharks. And I now have proof that people are actively trying to fish for white sharks. This footage shows a newly hooked white shark as well as an alleged shark tour company speeding near the shore almost hitting a couple white sharks.

I will strive to post citations for any information I discuss here whenever possible. My goal is to use photography and drones to bring awareness to wildlife and the nature around us. I welcome collaborations with scientists to bring cinematic elements to the educational presentation.
