Cape Cod & great whites

I’ve been to Cape Cod only once and I have some really fond memories of the place. Now it sounds like great whites sharks like it too, at least according to the numbers. You can read about them in this article entitled “Cape Cod’s Great White Shark Population May Be Growing” by Stephanie Pappas over at Live Science. I would love to visit again!

So last night my daughter said to me that she’s been watching Shark Week over on the Discovery Channel and so in honor of that, I first gave a few bucks to Conservation International and now I’ve decided to post an article on sharks.

The article is entitled “7 Unanswered Questions About Sharks” by By Laura Geggel over at LiveScience. After reading this article, I realized we really don’t know a lot about sharks. Go sharks!

Sincerely-

Great Whites

Like many people, I think that sharks are one of the most misunderstood animals on the planet.  I know that I call myself the Green Librarian, but I do love blue too and all it’s inhabitants.

Even though the helicopter crew in this article couldn’t just go up and measure this amazing animal, it’s hard to dispute the fact that it is huge or as they said, “It’s the biggest I’ve ever seen…”.

To learn more, check out the article entitled “Massive great white shark off Australia said to be ‘the size of Jaws’  by at GrindTV. Oh how I wished I could visit the oceans again. Or at least take my kids there. Maybe one day.

Sharks

When I came across this article/video last month, I thought wow! So what better time to post it than during shark week. It’s entitled “Largest great white shark ever videotaped underwater“? by over at GrindTV.

Go sharks!

The shark lady

I have to say that until today, I’d never heard of the shark lady. When I first this article, I actually was reminded of Dr. Sylvia Earle, another woman oceanographer.

The article is entitled “Eugene Clark, a.k.a. Shark Lady, dies at 92” over at GrindTV  by David Strege. The sharks have definitely lost a friend.

Sort of a david versus goliath out in the oceans

As someone who has always loved turtles and especially sea turtles, I have to say this story was an eye opener. The article (and video) entitled “Sea Turtle’s Strategy Foils Tiger Shark Attackover at the Inquisitr website lets you see first hand what strategy that sea turtles use to escape shark attacks.

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.

Sincerely-
