As more people head to oceans around the world in the warmer months, it's important to think about safety. The odds of getting bitten by a shark are low. But the fact is, when you venture in the ocean - you're going into a jungle - and we are not the rulers of that jungle. Still, there are ways to reduce the risk of a shark encounter - always being respectful of the territory you're entering. For more on sharks, check out www.sharktaskforce.com or www.captainjon.com
