Two Neat Resources for Learning About Sharks

Shark Watch SA (operators of Marine Dynamics Shark Tours) has published an interesting infographic about the declining Great White Shark population. The infographic, Great Danger for the Great White Shark, tells the story of a Great White Shark population study done off of the coast of South Africa. The best aspect of the infographic may be the clearly cited sources of information used in the creation of the infographic.

Looking at the infographic reminded me the shark story contained in the World Wildlife Fund's Together app. Through pictures, puzzles, videos, and maps the shark story in the WWF Together app teaches students about the diversity of sharks and the threats to their populations.

Research Conducted by Marine Dynamics a Shark Cage Diving Operator in Gansbaai South Africa.
