Nat Geo WILD: The Surfer and the Shark-Attack Survivor

‘Shark Attack Experiment’ diver Olivia Symcox and shark-attack survivor and surfer Todd Endris spent part of yesterday riding the storm-tossed waves at Scottburgh South Africa. They are both passionate supporters of shark conservation, and as you’ll see in the video below, they are hopeful that tonight’s show will help reduce the general public’s fear of sharks and shift perception of these animals in a positive direction.
