And the award for most dangerous people killer goes to…. definitely not sharks! Up front and centre for all of us right now is the scarily huge death toll from Covid-19 – 440,000 to date, and still rising. And yet, people who wouldn’t dream of getting into the water with a little white tip reef shark will happily insist on their rights to go out to socialise and work with a pandemic raging. If only all the time, energy and money going into “shark attack prevention” could be diverted to disease research, I think the world would be a safer and happier place.
