A few days ago, I was asked to be interviewed on the Eric Drozd Show on 570 News to talk about my views on the Discovery Chanel's Shark Week.
This was my second interview on 570 News and I was happy to have the opportunity be on the radio and on Rogers TV for this opportunity to talk about my love of sharks and why they need to be protected. I have mixed feelings about Shark Week. I think it is great to raise awareness about these beautiful creatures, but I also think that this show sometimes sensationalizes their bites and the fear that people have about sharks.
Shark Week is really popular and I know a lot of folks enjoying watching it. I hope that they will come to love sharks and understand that we have so much more to learn about these majestic undersea creatures.
I do like that Shark Week lets us get to see many new species of sharks that we didn't know existed before. I bet there are many more to discover.
Which shark do you think people fear the most? Many fear the Great White Shark the most because of movies like Jaws. Did you know that this shark is one of the most endangered? It is believed that there might only be 3500 Great Whites left in our oceans. I think that the more we learn about our fears, the more we will be able to get rid of them through understanding and education.
