Our shark "situation" on Cape Cod gives us a dubious distinction. The tragic, fatal shark attack in Wellfleet in September remains the lone shark fatality in the U.S. for 2018.
Whether you're terrified and no longer swimming here, or you're buying shark plush toys for kids, or you have a scientist's fascination with them, great white sharks are commanding a lot of attention.
I recently found this video of National Geographic photographer Brian Skerry employing a boat, a seal decoy and a drone to capture a photo of the elusive predator just offshore last summer. I hope you enjoy it. And know that, while you plan your next summer vacation on Cape Cod, there are scores of officials in the public and private sector working diligently to keep our waters safe.
