Daycare for baby sharks! Researchers find that coastline north of Newcastle, New South Wales is a playground for young great white sharks.
IT’S the kind of place kids love — wide, open spaces, plenty of food, the threats are few and the parents are usually nowhere to be seen.

We love saving sharks, but these kids take it to a whole new level! Don't try this at home!
Most people go out of their way to avoid sharks but not these fearless Aussie kids who channelled their inner Crocodile Hunter and pulled one of the predators from the water to help free it from a fishing hook.

Changes to Shark Week - the new Discovery Channel head promises to make it more authentic. What do you think? http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/eaten-alive-can-the-discovery-channel-recover-from-a-series-of-fearmongering-shows-9984457.html
As a boy, Jonathan Davis always looked forward to Shark Week on Discovery Channel. So when, as a shark biologist at the University of New Orleans, he was approached in 2013 to take part in a Shark Week documentary, he naturally accepted.

Unlike most sharks, Nurse Sharks pump water through their gills allowing them to rest on the seafloor. #SharkFacts

An Aussie fisherman got quite the shock when they found this prehistoric looking shark!
An extremely rare "living fossil" has been found in a fishing net off the shores of southeastern Victoria in Australia. The frilled shark gained the moniker of living fossil due to the species' lack of evolutionary change for the past 80...

Shark Shield - Proven Protection From Sharks
Introduction
Shark Shield is the only scientifically proven and independently tested electronic shark deterrent designed to reduce the risk of an unwanted shark encounter. Used by professionals and navies the world over, Shark Shield is a safety device providing peace of mind to enjoy your free-diving, spearfishing, scuba diving or kayak fishing while supporting the conservation of sharks. 

Shark Shield electronic shark deterrents are the result of over twenty years of scientific research and testing by some of the world’s leading experts in sharks, including the KwaZulu-Natal Shark Board in South Africa. Shark Shield is trusted by professional divers in the US and Australian Navies (NATO # 4220/661582710) and is mandated safety equipment in many industries such as the Australian Professional Abalone Diving.

All predatory sharks have highly sensitive electrical receptors called “Ampullae of Lorenzini” located in their snouts. These tiny gel filled sacs can only sense electrical current from prey at very close distances, typically much less than one meter. As sharks can only sense electrical currents at very short distances and all electrical currents are dispersed rapidly in water, the myth that sharks can sense electrical current at great distances is not true; as a result electronic shark deterrents do not attract sharks.

The powerful but localized electrical field generated by Shark Shield devices causes the sharks gel filled sacs to spasm and the shark to flee the immediate area. There are no known long term adverse effects to the shark and as a result Shark Shield devices support the conservation of sharks by removing the need for culling or other lethal means of managing human and shark interactions. Shark Shield devices do not affect other ocean creatures.

Trusted by thousands of professionals around the world Shark Shield is a must have piece of safety equipment, just like a seat belt. It is comfortable and lightweight, stored in a neoprene pouch that easily attaches to your ankle, with the low drag antenna trailing behind providing complete freedom to enjoy your free-diving, spearfishing, scuba diving or kayak fishing. Our rechargeable lithium ion battery provides up to seven hours of use, giving you plenty of time to enjoy the ocean with the confidence of knowing you are protected by Shark Shield and a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee.
