Some people may view the subject of the video below as animal abuse but others may think that it's cute that a tenacious predator can be made docile, if only by an experienced shark whisperer from Cuba.
"After diving for 35 years, Dr. David E. Guggenheim, the "Ocean Doctor," takes his first dive with many sharks in Jardines de la Reina, Cuba as part of a collaborative research and conservation project. What he sees when he surfaces he still can't believe !"
The video was made as part of the ongoing research for the Ocean Foundation by 1planet1ocean which,
"is a nonprofit organization, founded to explore, restore and sustain the oceans through strong international partnerships, offering solutions to the problems our oceans face."
