Shark Week used to be a great week to learn about sharks, but in recent years, it has become more fictional and misleading. Shark Week is now more about shark attacks and making them seem dangerous, rather then offering the viewers facts about how sharks really are in their natural habitat. By showing nothing more than shows about shark attacks and fake documentaries like "Megalodon", you are making people fear them, rather than respecting them and educating the viewers.

We as humans have to remember to respect these animals. When we enter the water, we're walking through a sharks front door.

Stop demonizing sharks on Shark Week!

Please consider more educational shows in upcoming Shark Weeks to educate us, not make us fear them!
