Episode 9 of the White Shark Interest Group Podcast, Facebook's' largest White Shark specific group, covering science, conservation, news, photography, video and debate.

This episode features Melissa speaking with shark attack survivor Dave Pearson, about his experience, the aftermath and trauma for all involved, and the social media comments and victim blaming following an incident or attack.

Dave is the founder of Bite Club, a support group for survivors of attacks and bites, as well as for the families and friends of victims following a tragic incident.

He also established Beyond The Bite, a support organisation serving many purposes for anyone involved in shark attacks, from helping to get surfers back in the water, to covering costs of families who need to travel to the site of a loved ones attack.

 

This is a MUST LISTEN for all shark advocates as Dave and Melissa discuss how advocates can really help in the aftermath and reporting of an incident, and how shark advocates can become human advocates at the right time it is needed most.

A real eye-opener of an episode.
