If you are in America you know its @sharkweek which is an awesome opportunity, I hope, to learn more about sharks. Did you know @natgeo @natgeowild also run their own week of sharks, and well, its fact checked, cited by scientific literature and real, every time.
I was lucky enough to partake in a documentary based in NZ, with National Geographic Wild, exploring the social behaviour of blue and mako sharks.
IT AIRS TONIGHT ET 8pm.
Its been a large part of my life for the last half decade, research, passion and doing good for the world wise. So please watch the show if you are in the northern hemisphere, and tell me how it compares to Shark week shows, how it addresses scientific understanding and whether you feel it does justice for the animals with no voice, but some big conservation problems. Yes we need stimulating visual imagery to draw a crowd. Shark Week does that better than any. I also use this method, its my motto, BUT those who exploit these amazing creatures for their draw card also have the responsibility to then communicate accurate information about the animals to better their situation. This is where I try really hard, why Nat Geo made me fact check everything i said, and well, why I hope Shark Week is doing the same. Im in NZ so I can't see it, so let me know how you think the two channels shows compare.
