Noel Lopez is protecting Sharks in the Marine Park of Jardines de la Reina, south of Cuba. Under his charge the population of sharks is growing again.
On the photo a Silky Shark (Carcharhinus falciformis) comes so close to Noel that he can get him very easy by hand. The shark falls in trance immediately. After release the predator circles around the divers without any aggression.
