Shark! Shark!

white shark

“Every year, more people are killed from falling coconuts than shark attacks.” 

But, thanks to humans, many species of sharks are endangered. 

And, I hate to say it, but the Discovery Channel and their “Shark Week” advertisements do nothing but encourage fear as opposed to respect, for these amazing creatures.

    It’s a sad truth that the number of some of these animals is dwindling each passing year. TV programmes that showcase activities that directly or indirectly endanger these threatened species are not my favorite.

    Oh, I so much love the NatGeo Wild channel.

    Don’t forget “Sharknado” and all the stupid scary shark movies it will spawn. it doesn’t help when the media hype surrounding a shark attack forgets to mention that the swimmer is in the shark’s domain – where humans are not in charge – or that they were stupid enough to swim next to a fishing pier where chum is regularly dumped over to entice such fish closer for the fishermen.
