Where We Live: Shark Day
The number of shark attacks reported worldwide increased 25% in 2010
The number of shark attacks reported worldwide increased 25% in 2010.
That sounds scary! Until you realize that the worldwide total is 79. And despite an increase in shark sitings, the shark population is actually declining.
Today, where we live, while the discovery Channel has their beloved Shark Week, we’re taking a small bite out of the action with our own shark day.
Join us today as we explore the terror that lies beneath the ocean. We’ll hear about how the filming of JAWS transformed a sleepy island village and we’ll hear about the history of sharks.
Why does “shark week” fascinate us? What is it about these dead-eyed killing machines that gives us the creeps?
