The Shark Research Institute

The Discovery Channel's Shark Week drew record ratings this year, netting more than 2.5 million viewers. What is it about sharks that so captivates our attention? The Shark Research Institute (SRI) website might provide a few answers to that question. Readers might like to start with SRI Alerts, which links to coverage of all things shark-related from around the web. Next, the About Sharks section features information concerning dozens of shark species listed in alphabetical order, as well as shark videos and a shark photo gallery. Links to the Global Shark Attack File, a site devoted to providing current and hsitorical data on shark/human interactions, can also be found here. The Education section is another great feature of this site, with Games, Handouts for Teachers, a Whale Shark Q&A, and a section on Kids Making a Difference, which profiles a number of children who have made contributions to shark conservation and research.
