IS IT SAFE TO DIVE WITH SHARKS?
One of the most common questions asked about sharks is whether it is safe to dive or swim with them. The answer is simple - while any wild predator should be treated with respect, you have a much greater chance of being injured while crossing the street than when swimming with a shark. The fear of sharks is hard-wired into our brains, and the media has done much to reinforce the view that sharks are dangerous. Unfortunately the reality is quite different. Sharks are becoming increasingly rare across our oceans and it is man that should be feared. Diving with sharks in a controlled and responsible manner is safe and the more people that get to dive with these stunning animals, the better chance we have to protect sharks for the future.
