Most people have seen lions in nature documentaries and films, schools often teach about these predators and how they behave based on in-depth studies and records from the field. However when it comes to sharks the information available is significantly less, leaving most people to only guess about how sharks behave and wonder if sharks are very different predators to lions.
Join me for a guided presentation as we dive into what sharks are, the misconceptions people have of them, and a look at why they don't eat people.

Mr. Grant Smith was an excellent guide, and taught our students so much about the gentle nature of sharks, as well as many other interesting facts. Our students can tell the difference between filter feeding sharks, as well as predatory sharks now. They have not stopped talking about the "cuddle shark" video ( as the students are now calling it) Grant showed us at the end of his presentation.
Thank you again Mr. Smith!
