Sam Perrin from London decided to go shark cage diving to overcome her fear after watching the movie Jaws as a child.

    *** VIDEO AVAILABLE *** NEW DELHI, INDIA - MARCH 2016: The beautiful creature is recovering well in March 2016 in New Delhi, India. A COMICAL-looking bird had a lucky escape after being kidnapped by Indian black magic poachers. The juvenile dusky eagle owl had its talons trimmed off by two men who intended to illegally sell its body parts. In India, owls are considered lucky and are still poached for their bones and blood due to outdated religious beliefs. The distressed creature was spotted by a concerned animal lover in a village in Agra, in north India, who alerted charity Wildlife SOS. PHOTOGRAPH BY Wildlife SOS / Barcroft Media UK Office, London.

    MITHYMNA, GREECE - MARCH 27: A pile of thousands of discarded life vests are dumped in a valley in hills above the town on March 27, 2016 in Mithymna, Greece. New boat arrivals on the island have reduced to almost zero over the last few days, but it remains unclear whether that is due to the windy weather or the deal between the EU and Turkey. The aid agency Doctors Without Borders, or MSF (Medecines Sans Frontieres), has recently announced that it was to cease operations in the Greek refugee camp at Moira. MSF spoke out after a deal struck last week between EU states and Turkey to force migrants and asylum seekers to return from Greek islands to Turkey came into place.
