Should we worry about sharks? Ocean Calls podcast EP10

Post Content

Ever since the mindblowing success of “Jaws”, where sharks are portrayed as bloodthirsty vengeful human-killers, people have been scared of these large marine predators.

But scientists believe that these magnificent animals deserve our attention. Many species of shark are in danger because of human activity and we really need them for our ecosystems to survive and thrive.

So, should we change our way of thinking about sharks? Should we care and protect them more than we do?

To discuss this issue, Euronews science reporter Jeremy Wilks is joined by two guests: Dr Iris Ziegler from the conservation organisation Sharkproject and Javier Garat Pérez, the president of Europêche, a representative body for the fishing industry in the European Union.

And at the end of the episode, you will hear from the Australian diver and filmmaker Madison Stewart about her favourite ocean animal – or favourite ocean experience. What will they be?

Hosted by Euronews science reporter Jeremy Wilks.

Produced by Naira Davlashyan and Natalia Oelsner.

Sound design and mixing are by Jean-Christophe Marcaud and Matthieu Duchaine.

Carolyne Labbe is our production coordinator.

The theme music is by Gabriel Dalmasso.
