In honor of 25 years of Shark Week on Discovery Channel, I've decided to make this week's infographic all about sharks! It's amazing to see how far Shark Week has come in all this time. I'm truly stunned and hope that people appreciate and respect these amazing animals.
Interesting Shark Week & other shark Info:
- 30+ million viewers in 2010 & Discovery's most viewed show
- In 2002, biologist Erich Ritter was bitten while filming
- 73+ million sharks are killed every year (8,333 every hour)
- From 1970 to 2000, hammerhead shark population has declined by 99%
