Shark Circles Around Scuba Divers
Occurred on March 12, 2019 / Placencia, Belize
Info from Licensor: "I was scuba diving as part of a volunteer program by International Volunteers HQ in Belize off the coast of Placencia. Our main goal of the dives was to spear as many invasive lionfish as possible. The lionfish are a huge problem for the ecosystem because they eat the indigenous fish.
The nurse shark kept circling me as me and the other volunteers dove through the coral reef. As soon as it would leave, it would turn around and return to where I was scuba diving. Definitely a scary moment!"
