July 14th National Shark Awareness Day
We are terrorized by sharks in the water these days. Ever since Jaws we envision them attacking us for no good reason but that just isn’t true. Sharks have been around for over 230 million years and humans have never been on the top selling list for shark treats. In fact, only 7 deaths are average a year from shark attacks across the entire world. Yet we humans kill more than a million sharks every year. The odds of your getting attacked by a shark are 1 in 11. Million chances. Lightening is 1- 500,000 chances.
How to celebrate – Study sharks from a safe distance. Do not challenge a shark in the water, they are a better swimmer than you. Pay attention to shark warnings at the beach.
