The man who started it all

Even though Shark week is over, I wanted to write out a post to a man who why may have increased our fear of sharks with his book (and later movie) Jaws, later became one of the greatest advocates for sharks.

His name was Peter Benchley and the article is entitled “The Writer of ‘Jaws’ was a Great Advocate for Shark Protection and Ocean Conservation” by Michael Graham Richard over at Treehugger.

Just to show you how far we’ve come since then, I would like to direction your attention to a previous post of mine entitled Land Shark.
