Did the race of Phelps vs a Great White Shark do Marine Conservation some good? That is the question that many people asked before the premiere of Shark Week 2017. Discovery debuted its annual shark week with an episode pitting Olympic Great, Michael Phelps, versus a Great White Shark. Some say that this was a pointless exercise as sharks are way faster than humans. Others thought that Phelps was the best swimmer over any species. I think it made for great promotion, television and a great chance to educate viewers on the speed of sharks.
Also on the show, I answer the question some of the group members asked: How can I contribute to Marine Conservation in my career even of I am not a scientist.
