Divers are taught to look and not touch. But there are exceptions to every rule—say, sparing a shark from the pain of a fishing hook.
British scuba diver Leigh Cobb graciously removed a hook caught in the mouth of an oceanic whitetip shark. ‘The hook was stopping it from eating, so I think I could well have saved its life,” says Cobb, who is also a talented underwater photographer.
Check out the impressive video below. And remember that no act is too small to protect the ocean’s inhabitants.
