Shark bite fatalities have tripled. Should we be worried?

I’ve been spending lots of time fielding questions about what’s happening with shark bites in Australia lately. Here are some of my thoughts…

This also comes with the really important note that while we discuss shark bite statistics as numbers, each of these numbers represents a person. Every single fatality that has occurred this – or any year – has been an absolutely tragedy. I sincerely hope that anyone who has been affected by these events is being supported to the greatest extent possible.
