What’s Next On National Geographic’s SharkFest?

SharkFest from Web

We’re nearing the end of National Geographic’s SharkFest, but the fun isn’t over yet. This week, the network plans to take a walk on the wild side.

We are definitely looking forward to learning all about basking sharks. PEOPLE gives these creatures a great description:

“This big-mouthed, plankton-eating shark is the second-largest living shark species in the world, growing to be up to 45 feet long. Whales sharks come in at number one. Basking sharks use their giant maws to filter through 4 million pounds of water every hour, gobbling up small sea creatures along the way.”

On Monday, you can also expect to see Sharks of the Bermuda Triangle on Nat Geo WILD at 8 PM eastern time. The show takes a look at the sea creatures that live in the Bermuda Triangle. This 500,000 square mile area is known for shipwrecks and sunken planes, but scientists also believe it’s a secluded breeding ground for tiger sharks. Dive on in and discover the wonder for yourself.

National Geographic is Already Planning for Sharkfest 2021

If you missed out on the fun this year, don’t worry. The National Geographic channel is already making plans for next year. We recently reported that Marvel star Chris Hemsworth will star in a NatGeo documentary called Shark Beach. Too many shark shows sensationalize shark attacks and make sharks look really scary. Shark Beach aims to show how humans and sharks can live in harmony and share the ocean.

“I’ve spent a great deal of my life near or in the ocean, sharing the same backyard with sharks, and recently there’s been some growing concern regarding an increase in shark activity,” says Hemsworth. His entire family is actually very involved in environmental activism. The Hemsworths pledged $1 million earlier this year to support Australian wildfire relief efforts.

We’re really excited about NatGeo’s desire to help teach about wildlife. If you’ve learned anything exciting about sharks over the past few weeks, share with us in the comments.


More Shark Content to Love

The Discovery Channel’s Shark Week is wrapping up too. This year, the program focused on conservation. The network teamed up with Oceana to help viewers understand the importance of protecting our wildlife. Specifically, Discovery and Oceana want to call attention to the horrible shark fin market.
“The fight against this brutal practice is supported by Discovery and other Shark Week partners who are creating content to educate fans about why healthy oceans need sharks and are raising money in support of Oceana’s campaigns, which include advocating for the passage of the Shark Fin Sales Elimination Act of 2019,” the Discovery Channel said in a statement.
