The Best Week of the Year!

This week is the best week of the year. It’s SHARK WEEK! A week that the Discovery Channel dedicates entirely to one of the ocean’s most feared and misunderstood predators. I usually spend shark week glued to my TV, only leaving to eat and sleep. But this year I am working full time so I will have to miss out some. Lucky for me, Shark Weeks from years passed are available for instant play on Netflix. Any posts I make this week will be dedicated to sharks everywhere.

Shark Week runs from today, August 4th, through Saturday, August 10th.

Visit Shark Week’s page on the Discovery Channel website for more shark-tastic information and fun!

I recently came across this article at about a single simple way that biologists are saying they could be saved. Check it out at this link!
