Shark Task Force (podcasts)
Everything you wanted to know about sharks and ocean conservation.

This time on the Shark Task Force, a special thought for 2017 from the one and only Dr. Sylvia Earle.

She talks about the special bond between Tiger Shark Expert, Jim Abernethy and a Tiger Shark he's known for more than a decade - Emma.

We've spent many days with Emma underwater over the years - and we always come back to the boat with a complete since of joy.

Plenty more to come in 2017 as we celebrate ten years of The Shark Task Force.

We also look forward to bringing you news of the US premiere of This is Your Ocean: Sharks - Part 2.

Happy New Year - and remember - why wait a whole year, for just one week on sharks?

Special thanks to Jim Abernethy, Guy Harvey and the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation.

A recent death and several injuries in the Red Sea are being blamed on a type of shark - the Oceanic Whitetip. Officials believe the Oceanic Whitetip Sharks were attracted close to shore near Sharm El-Sheikh after a boat dumped dead cattle into the water. Some environmentalists say the sharks moved closer to shore, due to a lack of food. This time on the Shark Task Force, we take a closer look at this shark - and why it's always investigating its surroundings.
