With the increase in the shark population off the coast of Cape Cod and the realization that sharks, including great whites, are now a big part of our eco-structure in Massachusetts and New England, people's fascination with sharks has grown immensely!
Ever wonder what it must feel like to be attacked by a shark? This morning on the Loren and Wally Show, Paul De Gelder, from Australia, told us EXACTLY what it feels like!
"SHARK WEEK" begins this Sunday night on Discovery! Every year, it is one of the most anticipated series on television. I've been fascinated by sharks, especially great whites, since the movie "Jaws" came out in 1975. Yesterday, I interviewed shark experts Greg Skomal and Joe Romeiro. Great is a Senior Biologist with the MA Department of Marine Fisheries and was the first person to ever tag a great white shark in the North Atlantic ocean. Joe is a film maker and underwater cinematographer, who has many shark dives to his credit. He's filmed great white sharks, without a cage, and lived to tell about it.
Both Greg and Joe will be featured on "Discovery" next week during "Shark Week". Make sure to go to www.wror.com and check out my interviews with them, beginning Monday. They are fascinating and you'll be shocked by what you learn about one of the world's greatest predators. They also are both part of the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy.

Our ocean's ecosystem is all connected...from the tiniest zooplankton to the largest apex predator. White sharks are an asset to our marine environment. As apex predators they play a critical role in maintaining the health of our ocean's ecosystem.
Naturalist and Award winning cinematographer Joe Romeiro developed a love for the ocean at a young age. Especially, the shark. Along with awarding photographer and sound engineer Bill fisher they founded and created 333productions LLC / 333 Digital .
