Tagging a Massive Great White Shark | Shark Week


♪♪ Narrator:
WITH WHITE SHARKS HUNTING CLOSER AND CLOSER
TO COASTLINES, TWO MEN ARE ATTEMPTING
TO FIND A SOLUTION TO KEEP
PEOPLE AND SHARKS SAFE. ♪♪ CRITICAL THAT WE GET A PHOTO
I.D. OF THE ONE WE TAG. OFF THE CHATHAM ISLANDS
IN NEW ZEALAND, THE TEAM IS ATTEMPTING
TO DEPLOY A SAT TAG
ON A MASSIVE WHITE SHARK TO TRACK ITS MOVEMENTS
USING GPS. ♪♪ TO DEPLOY THE TAG, THEY MUST GET
WITHIN ARM’S REACH OF THE SHARK. ♪♪ ♪♪ ♪♪ ♪♪ WHOO-HOO! ♪♪ EVERY SINGLE TIME
YOU TRY TO TAG THAT THING, IT JUST CAME STRAIGHT UP
TO THE CAGE WITH ITS MOUTH OPEN. I WAS LIKE — I THOUGHT,
“HAS ANYONE EVER TAGGED THEM ON THE INSIDE OF THE MOUTH
BEFORE?” ANDY AND KINA CAN NOW
TRACK THE SHARK’S MOVEMENTS AS IT ENTERS THE COASTLINE. AS THEY HEAD BACK TO SHORE, THEY’RE ALERTED OF A SHARK
ENCOUNTER IN THE SHALLOWS. I LIVE ON THE CHATHAM ISLANDS.
BEEN HERE FOR 45 YEARS. FISHERMAN, DIVER, AND EVERYTHING
ELSE THAT GOES WITH THAT. I WAS JUST GOING FROM
ONE REEF TO ANOTHER, DIVING, AND I JUST SAW OUT OF THE CORNER
OF MY EYE A 15-FOOTER. -WOW.
-COME STRAIGHT ALONGSIDE ME. I SORT OF STARFISHED
ON THE BOTTOM, AND THEN I MANAGED TO FLIP OVER,
AND HE CAME AROUND AGAIN, HOVERED JUST LIKE
A BLOODY HELICOPTER AND THEN, BOOM, JUST DROPPED. AND THEN AT THAT POINT,
I JUST WENT LIKE THAT AND JUST RAN MY FINGER
RIGHT ALONG HIS BELLY, AND THEN AS IT
SORT OF WENT PAST ME, THEY CAME FLYING OVER, AND
THEN I SORT OF LOOKED AROUND, AND THEN I JUST SEE IT…
-TAKING OFF. -…TAKING OFF, YEAH.
-OOH. BLOODY HELL, YEAH.

  1. Hermoso el trabajo que realizan en el mar. πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—

  2. Here before all the ignorant people complain that they're "hurting the sharks" and say they need to be left alone lol

  3. I have a natural shark repellent that when I am in the water and see a shark I produce this brown squishy substance in my shorts that sharks just do not like!

  4. What a truly heart stopping video, so close my heart pounded for you. Your videos and studies are extremely close up, feels like we are right there with you. Many thanks for sharing the true life experiences with all of us. Stay Safe.

  5. WHY THE HELL ARE THE GAPS IN THE CAGE SO DAMN BIG??! IT'S AS IF YOU IDIOTS WANT THE SHARKS TO COME IN THE HOUSE, WASH THEIR FINS AND AND CHOW DOWN. SMH

  6. "Lets get this fancy GPS monitor on the shark, so it can tell us that the shark just swims around the ocean and eats stuff!!"

  7. But they'll cry when they get tagged back cause most humans need about 5, 4 alarm wake up calls a day before they realize that doing stuff like this makes you worse than a pile of trash
