Get ready, people … “Shark Week” is here.

The annual week-long series – which airs on the Discovery Channel – is the longest-running cable television program of all-time, dating back to 1987. It’s also the center of a public awareness campaign aimed at demystifying – and protecting – the ocean’s top predator.

“Scientists verified that about 100 million sharks are killed annually, up from the 73 million that had been documented previously,” shark attack survivor Debbie Salamone noted for the Discovery channel. “In contrast, sharks generally attack about 70 people on average each year, resulting in a handful of deaths. So remember those statistics when you’re cringing in your seat during those Shark Week attack reenactments.”

It’s also worth noting there are some pretty inhumane methods employed in hunting sharks – especially shark fins.

We don’t approve of such methods … at all. Mankind has been given dominion over the animal kingdom, but this dominion comes with an obligation to be good stewards – and to treat animals humanely.

This year’s “Shark Week” kicked off on Sunday with “Megalodon: The Monster Shark Lives” – a program devoted to recent sightings of massive great white sharks believed to be related to the prehistoric predator.

Shark Week – big hit with my kids every year. Watch out, though…they sneak a “mockumentary” in once in a while (last year it was mermaids, for cryin’ out loud). This year it’s “Megalodon” the ginormous mythical prehistoric 100 foot-long great white grandaddy…
