Shark safety is important to learn and teach your kids before you visit the beach this summer.
We’ve seen reports of increases in shark attacks at beaches on TV and social media. Experts say that this may be attributed to warmer weather and drought conditions that cause sharks to come closer to the shore. Whatever the reason, there are a few ways that you can protect yourself while enjoying your time in the ocean:
1) Always wade or swim near a group of people. Never venture out by yourself — that makes someone appear like prey to a shark. You should also no longer float in the ocean as a form of relaxation (save that for the pools).
