Discovery Channel is working with nearly two dozen marine biologists and science institutions to bring brand-new, innovative shark research technology and compelling insight on some of the most unique shark species in the world.
Shark Week 2020 will take viewers to New Zealand, Australia and South Africa to see how the global lockdown and reduced amount of human activity on the seas have given sharks the opportunity to reclaim the oceans.
Other shows in the line-up include Tiger Shark King; Air Jaws Ultimate Breach Off, Sharks Of Ghost Island, Air Jaws 2020 and Shark Lockdown.
This year, Oceana and Discovery continue to team up to help protect sharks, which are threatened by a global shark fin trade that includes fins from as many as 73m sharks each year. The fight against the wasteful practice is supported by Discovery and other Shark Week partners who are creating content to educate viewers about why healthy oceans need sharks and are raising money in support of Oceana’s campaigns, which include advocating for the passage of the Shark Fin Sales Elimination Act of 2019.
Shark Week 2020 will premiere in the region from August 16 on Discovery Channel (OSN channel 500).
