Diving into #SharkWeek Date: Posted on Aug 6, 2014 Guests:Rachel Dearborn - Upwell Christie Wilcox - Discover Magazine Victoria Vasquez - Ocean Research Foundation Sharks for Kids Kristina Gonzales - One World One Ocean and more! Description: Shark Week is a week-long phenomenon where it seems all eyes are on sharks. First broadcasting in 1987, Discovery’s Shark-centric programming has been making a huge splash ever since. Throughout the years, there have been examples of both really jawsome(jawesome) programming, and some real disappointments that were downright miseducational. Groups like Upwell have found that this week notes an explosion of interest in these marine animals and have taught “sharkinars” on how scientists and conservation groups can harness this frenzy.
