About the Show

Are sharks really out to get us? Are these predators mindless man eaters demonized by the popular media and movies like  “Jaws”? That’s the driving question behind this high-adrenaline, two-hour live National Geographic event. Shark Attack Experiment: LIVE! will beam from the world’s most shark-infested location off the coast of South Africa. Here, a team of free-diving shark junkies and conservationists put their own safety on the line to run a series of hi-tech tests to separate shark attack myths from realities. Also on location during Shark Attack Experiment: LIVE! are shark attack survivors willing to tell their stories and enter the water, some for the first time since their traumatic encounters. Their objective is no stunt; their goal is to raise public awareness that the world’s shark species are being destroyed by overfishing.
