Shark, Marine research and Conservation
Ocean Ramsey is a model, scuba diver, and instructor as well as a free diver. She is most noted for her work as a shark conservationist, in which she swims with sharks, including great white sharks, to show the importance of conservation. Ramsey is based in Hawaii but has dived with 32 species of sharks around the world as of 2013
Ramsey’s freediving accomplishments include an impressive 6.5 minute-underwater dive. She’s also started her own marine research and conservation company. But her greatest passion is for sharks. Her move into the spotlight came after she was filmed swimming alongside a great white shark, holding onto its fin.
For her, swimming with a great white was nothing unusual, but for the public it was an impressive and extreme feat.
Changing the perception that great white sharks are dangerous is what really drives Ramsey.
