“Swimming with Sharks: In Conversation With Dr. Luiz Rocha”
Academy Ichthyology Curator Dr. Luiz Rocha
Happy Shark Awareness Day! Sharks are some of the most vilified and feared animals in the world, but behind the scary media headlines lies a very different story: Sharks pose no real risk to humans—in fact, it’s the other way around. Join us live as curator Dr. Luiz Rocha recounts some of his most memorable shark encounters, talks about shark diversity and biology, and makes the case that we desperately need to protect sharks if we want a thriving, healthy ocean.
