Отчаянный фотограф Аманда Брюэр показала серию потрясающих фотографий опасных океанских хищников, снятых на экшн-камеру GoPro.
Эти восхитительные снимки были сделаны в курортном городе Моссел-Бей, ЮАР.
Как эколог и соучредитель организации по защите акул Sharkservation, Аманда Брюэр прибыла в Южную Африку на семинар, в ходе которого экотуристическая компания White Shark Africa пыталась привлечь внимание общественности к проблеме незаконной охоты на акул.
Too close for comfort: One shark heads perilously close to the GoPro camera in the water in Mossel Bay, South Africa
Fish out of water: The female shark seen breaching out of the water is named ‘Blackgill’, and is known for its outstanding beauty
Don’t get too close: Illegal shark hunting, mostly in order for the dead shark to be made into shark fin soup, is the main reason for the killing of sharks. A single bowl of shark fin soup can cost as much as £100 ($150) in Asia, with almost all of the body discarded as waste
Impressive: Shark conservationist Amanda Brewer managed to photograph these stunning predators in full motion thanks to her skilful use of a GoPro camera, allowing her to get close and personal with the sharks
These powerful images were captured in Mossel Bay, South Africa, where eco tourism company White Shark Africa have been trying to raise awareness of the plight of the beautiful creatures as sharks continue to be hunted each year
Terrifying: An estimated 100 million sharks are being killed every single year for profit, according to shark conservation group Sharkservation. 6.4 per cent to 7.9 per cent of the global shark population is killed on average each year
Stunning creatures: The sharks appeared to be fascinated by the GoPro camera, swimming right up close and revealing their sharp teeth
