So, what's it gonna be?

I was pleasantly surprised by this.

So, what's it gonna be?
Another Discovery Shark Week filled with gore, attacks and asinine presenters, or a look at Sharks by a channel who makes a living by educating people about the wonders of our fragile planet - and this, without deceiving their audience?

This time, I'm moderately optimistic.
We were contacted about two productions for Shark Week and although both didn't eventuate (we simply had no space on short notice), both looked fun, entertaining and respectful of Sharks. I also hear that there has been some re-shuffling within Discovery and that the worst pornographers have been removed - but then again, there are whispers about Shark Porn being filmed in SA, and that everybody has been ordered to be very very quiet about what is being planned.

So I guess that as always, we shall see!
But as a gesture of good will, we've removed the petition from our website - at least temporarily!

PS: As chance would have it, more information has just been published here. Having obtained the seal of approval from Oceana is great news - now let's see if they deliver!
