Elasmobranchs, what are they ? On the occasion of the ‘Shark Week’ from July 24th to 30th, Pure Ocean invites you to learn a little more about sharks every day!
Shark Week is an initiative carried out by the American documentary channel, ‘Discovery Channel’ for the past 34 years. Initially geared towards sensationalism, it has helped to spread the reputation of ‘man-hunting’ sharks that we know today. Like the issues involved, the event has evolved significantly over the past few decades, and is now dedicated to educating viewers about the threats to sharks and their habitats, and dispelling the myths surrounding their image. By 2022, it has become one of the most followed shark conservation media events around the globe.
