18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Shark Reef

Shark Reef Marine Reserve is located off the southern side of Viti Levu island in Fiji. Sharks and other marine life are protected here and it allows for a vibrant, healthy underwater ecosystem. It was amazing to see the large amounts of fish and especially larger predators like sharks. There was so much activity that wherever you looked it was a frenzy of movement.
