A TV documentary about Donegal’s basking sharks is to be watched by millions of viewers across Canada today.
Discovery Channel Canada will feature a number of research initiatives undertaken by the Irish Basking Shark Study Group off Malin Head as one of its Shark Week news items.
The programme which was filmed in 2013 and 2014 will air today at 7pm Canadian time as the lead feature for the magazine programme Daily Planet.
It will be made available online afterwards for those who were not able to watch the program.
Shark week is Discovery Channels flagship promotion and last year was the most watched event on the station and on American TV, outside of Sports events.
Shark conservation and in particular shark finning is rapidly becoming the conservation battle of the new century.Tags:
