Shark Week 2021

Discovery Channel’s Shark Week officially begins on Sunday, August 9th-August 16th, and has been a summer tradition for 32 years. Shark week began as a conservation effort to correct false impressions about sharks. Peter Benchley, the author of the best-selling fish story Jaws, never recovered from the damage caused by misconceptions in his fictional story of a great white menace that stalked beach-goers in a summer beach town. He dedicated the rest of his life to educating and protecting the dinosaur from the deep from human destruction.
