Discovery Channel Canada will feature a number of research initiatives undertaken by the Irish Basking Shark Study Group off Malin Head as one of its Shark Week news items. The programme, which was filmed in 2013 and 2014, will air on August 12th at 7pm as the lead feature for the magazine program Daily Planet. It will be made available online afterwards for those who were not able to watch the program.
Here is a preview of what will be on offer.
Shark Week is Discovery Channel's flagship promotion and last year was the most watched event on the station and on American TV, outside of sports events. Shark conservation and in particular, shark finning, is rapidly becoming the conservation battle of the new century. More updates to follow.
