The Oceans4Ever Summer SharkTakular is now over. I was honored to participate and I hope that Alexa and Cindy will continue this tradition in the future.

    You might be interested to know, this year’s Shark Week program guide looks as horrible as usual:

    Quick rundown: The guide features the word “Attack” 11 times, “bite” 6 times and “deadly”, “scary” and “blood” 2 times each.

    The words “conservation”, “endanged”, “finning”, “education” and – believe it or not — “science” aren’t featured at all.
