Humans spend more time in or on the water than ever before. We love the beach. But for many people, getting in the water provokes a moment’s hesitation. Shark attacks are big news events and although the risk of shark attack on humans is incredibly low, the fact remains that human lives are lost to sharks every year. Shark Attacks explores the tension between risk to humans and the need to conserve sharks and protect the important ecological roles they play in our marine environments. Marine biologist Blake Chapman presents scientific information about shark biology, movement patterns and feeding behaviour. She discusses the role of fear in the way we think about sharks and the influence of the media on public perceptions. Moving first-hand accounts describe the deep and polarising psychological impacts of shark attacks from a range of perspectives. This book is an education in thinking through these emotive events and will help readers to navigate the controversial issues around mitigating shark attacks while conserving the sharks themselves.

Shark attack! The very expression sends a shiver down the spine. It conjures terrifying images of hidden menace from the undersea world, of rasping teeth, of injuries too horrifying to contemplate, of once-calm water foaming pink with blood. The reality of shark attack includes all these nightmares, and more. Few fears in the human imagination can compare with being eaten alive by this baleful killer fish. All of these things happen, usually without warning, to real people just like you or I. But they happen very, very rarely, and are but a tiny part of the truth behind this mysterious and misunderstood creature. Shark Attack explains the reality behind the killer facade.
