LINKED TO NAT GEO CROSS-PLATFORM EVENTS: An exhibit of Skerry’s shark photography opens at National Geographic headquarters in late May 2017; at the same time, the fourth of four Skerry stories on sharks appears in National Geographic magazine. In addition, NatGeo Wild’s SharkFest kicks off with television programming all about these amazing creatures.
TIMED FOR SHARK WEEK: If there’s ever a time in the year when sharks are on people’s minds, it’s summer—and Shark Week, customarily in late June or early July.
RENOWNED UNDERWATER PHOTOGRAPHY: An award-winning photographer and longtime contributor to National Geographic magazine, Skerry is recognized worldwide for work on ocean creatures and habitats.
“Full of stunning underwater photography, fascinating facts and shark-reverant prose.”—Los Angeles Times
“Brian Skerry has devoted much of his career to capturing, in his words, ‘intimate portraits’ of sharks. In his new book, Shark, you can come along for the ride to the shallow waters of Cape Cod, the shores of New Zealand’s North Island, and the mangroves of the Bahamas. This book not only lets you see these ancient predators in their native habitat, it provides the kinds of facts and context that satisfies the curiosity of novices and shark junkies alike. Driven by a sense of urgency that these species are under threat, Skerry has assembled a set of stunning images that show exactly what’s now at stake.”—Juliet Eilperin, Washington Post staff writer and author of Demon Fish: Travels Through the Hidden World of Sharks
“Powerful images bring to life the reality of these ocean predators and the plights they face for survival…fascinating, hair-raising and inspiring…The book reminds readers that saving sharks isn’t simply about doing the right thing, it’s also about doing something critical to the overall health of the sea” –Mother Nature Network
