The shark whisperer, Ocean Ramsey aims to change our fear of sharks

You might know of Ocean Ramsey as not so long ago she went viral after shooting a video swimming with a great white shark and even grabbing hold of the shark. Perhaps nominative determinism didn’t give Ocean any choice in life. She was always going to grow up and be part of the ocean.

She recently stepped out of her comfort zone (swimming with sharks…) and took the floor at a Ted x talk in Europe. She wanted to raise awareness but also change perceptions on our collective view of sharks. She also opens up herself, sharing her despair at seeing the animal she loves being hunted mercilessly to extintion for nothing more than a bland soup that helps people feel important.
