Nurse sharks have been in the news lately, but not for good reasons. There have been two incidents in the recent weeks that have been published where two people have been bitten by nurse sharks. 

The first person was feeding a nurse shark in Australia. Her hand was sucked into the mouth of the shark who was trying to eat the bait set out for it to eat.

The second person decided that they would swim within a school of nurse sharks, floating on her back, to get a great pic for her social media. 

I talk about how these incidences and viral news stories can have a potential negative effect on the population on nurse sharks in the future because of the bad decisions that a few people make.
