Observation & Approach Techniques for Marine Animals
STINGRAYS are flatfish, cousins of sharks. They have at the base of their tails one or more spines that they use as a defense if they feel threatened. Once in the water, do not make sudden movements that can scare the animal. Be careful not to step on them when placed on the sand. You can touch them on top in the presence of your guide. Be careful not to put your hands under the ray because they have a mouth and it can bite when looking for food. Watch out for the eyes on the top. Thank you also for paying attention to your watches or jewelry that can hurt the animal.
BLACKTIP SHARKS are small reef sharks very common in French Polynesia. They are not dangerous but still remain sharks in their natural environment, so do not feed them, keep your arms around your body if a shark approaches, do not chase them or try to touch them, and do not make sudden movements to avoid frightening them. The best thing is to let them come to you by moving as little as possible.
FISH are everywhere in the lagoon. In protected areas, please do not fish or try to touch them. Some are equipped with barbs, poison and can bite as a defense mechanism. Also, be careful not to walk on the stonefish, which as their name suggests, are like a small rock and are very dangerous.
MORAY EELS are usually harmless unless they feel threatened. They live in reef holes or under coral blocks. If you see an opening in a coral or rock, do not put your hands or feet on it. If you see a moray eel swimming around you, stay calm and stay away from it. Let her go and do not try to touch her.
All “rocks” inside the lagoon are coral, whatever their colors or shapes. It can be very sharp or irritating. Coral is a living animal, extremely fragile and has a microcosm often invisible to the naked eye. Please do not walk on it (even with water shoes) and pay attention to the flippers. You can, however, put your feet on the sand without problems.
