Shark Attack Study Announced: Politics of Bite Incidents Under Review
Date:2/7/2010

A first of its kind PhD program by an American at the University of Sydney will look at the politics of shark attacks. The research will focus on high profile shark bite incidents in Australia, the United States and South Africa. In each country, beach policies, shark conservation policies and shark control policies have been impacted by media coverage and public response to the shark incidents. This study will review the connection between the politics of shark attacks and the polcies which follow.

(PRWEB) February 7, 2010 -- Washington, D.C. lobbyist Christopher Neff will commence a doctoral program in Sydney, Australia on March 1st to study the politics of shark attacks. The first of its kind doctoral study will look at the impact of shark attacks on the development of shark conservation policies and beach protection policies in Australia, the United States and South Africa. “The central question is, how do governments develop public policies to protect endangered sharks, when the sharks may harm the public,” stated Neff. This question will be the basis for the research program at the University of Sydney.

“Shark bite incidents on humans are among the most tragic, infrequent and fear-inducing experiences a person can have,” Neff added. “The goal of this research is to make beaches safer for people and to protect sharks from policies based on myths.” In the past two months, there have been several high profile shark attacks in the United States, Australia and South Africa including two fatalities, raising concerns regarding the presence of sharks near beachgoers. Neff suggested that this study may help governments and conservationists communicate with beachgoers and share information between nations in the future.
