White Shark Caught on Drone Camera Swimming Next to Humans

White Shark Caught on Drone Camera Swimming Next to Humans

Drones reveal the big white sharks swimming next to humans. White sharks' wandering in the majority of the beach waters of the world remains a mystery.



The winds from a Santa Barbara beach are surveyed by Carlos Gauna. The afternoon is cool, grey and only a couple of people come in the water: a dad teaches his son to swim.

Gauna launches a camera drone to spy what might steadily move between them — big white sharks.

"To anyone deluding themselves that the ocean's most-feared predator prefers to avoid humans, it is also absolutely terrifying. In dozens of videos that have been viewed millions of times, Gauna has shown sharks meandering through the waves close to surfing beaches, frequently coming within a few feet of surfers, kayakers, and bodyboarders who appear oblivious to the danger." [1]

This could have seemed like a quixotic undertaking throughout the past decades. In these southern waters, great whites have been thought to be a little odd, roaming from the wilderness into the west now and then. Most surfers thought it very unlikely that one of these apex predators hunted their break for food.

Within one and a half minutes of launch, Gauna spots an excellent white man. The Shark languidly about 100 meters from the son and the dad in the surfing line. He says, "Wow, he is on the waves." It's so beautiful."

He locked his screen in the immediate vicinities on four more juvenile sharks.

Young Shark Found Near the Sea Beach

Not amazed is Gauna. Unlike "Jaws" police leader Martin Brody, he should not shout at everybody's beach to get away from the sea. The appearance of young sharks is natural. They're here for most of the year, not just at this cove but all the way from San Diego to Point Conception. Before now, people couldn't see them.

"These experiences still took place," he said. "This suggests that the number of assaults is very limited."

Gauna is part of a team of researchers and photographers who use drones to explore and view them in a more practical way through his YouTube channel, TheMalibuArtist. Gauna presents the hyped-up realism and horror films.

Professor Told Drones are the Best Weapon

Christopher Lowe, Professor of Marine Biology and Head of the Shark Lab at Cal State Long Beach, says, "Drones have been such a valuables weapon for our scientists now." "It gives us the vision we didn't have before of the bird's-eye."

"Carlos gets great pictures," he says. "He's got some amazing stuff."

"The surfers can't see them, the swimmers can't see them. But we can now see them from the air. And in those cases, the sharks just don't seem to change their path," Lowe added. "Sometimes they'll swim right under a surfer, but they don't circle back. They just keep going." [2]

A mythical animal wandering the majority of the waters of the world remains a mystery to many great white sharks. Tagging has revealed, for example, that California's adults spend the majority of their life in the Pacific between Baja California and Hawaii — men 8 months a year, women 1/2 years. Nobody knows why or what they're eating out. But researchers are nullifying responses with additional satellite tagging and aerial monitoring.

Researchers have wondered for a long time how sharks act around humans outside the occasional bite that makes headlines. Were they curious? Were they curious? Were they skittish? Were they skittish? And why didn't they ignore it?

"It seems as if sharks don't worry as much as possible," Lowe said.
