Were Gonna Need a Bigger Boat
Strangest class picture of all time? Nope, just a little tourism. A 12 foot long female tiger shark shows off her size above a row of SCUBA divers at Tiger Beach in the Bahamas, a popular ecotourism spot. There have been worries that these eco tourist spots disrupt sharks natural wanderings by making them overly dependent on the chum that tour guides throw out to attract the giant, predatory fish. But new research suggests that s not the case. In fact, responsible eco tourism may benefit sharks by encouraging local governments to protect them.
