Florida Keys National Wildlife Refuges Complex
Today is Shark Appreciation/Awareness Day. There are many species of sharks that you might encounter snorkeling or fishing in the Florida Keys waters; you'll find them on the oceanside in deep waters and coral reef habitats all the way into the shallow backcountry waters that surround the Florida Keys National Wildlife Refuges. Sharks play a critical role as apex predators in our marine ecosystems. Most people who get the chance to see them in the wild come away with a sense of awe and appreciation for these incredible creatures. Feel free to share some of your shark stories with us in your comments below. The video was taken a few years ago out at Looe Key Reef, part of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. It is of three Caribbean reef sharks that were leisurely swimming along the back side of the reef. One had a long piece of terminal fishing tackle hanging from its mouth, one had a school of bar jacks along as an entourage. It is always amazing to witness these creatures in the wild.
