Surviving the Shark: How a Brutal Great White Attack Turned a Surfer into a Dedicated Defender of Sharks
With special guests: Marine biologist, Wallace "J" Nichols, and photographer David McGuire, who will screen his short film "Swim for Sharks".
In Surviving the Shark, Jonathan Kathrein describes his incredible shark attack experience. How Kathrein is able to escape and make his way to shore, despite his horrific wounds, is nothing short of amazing. But that s just the beginning, as he now faces months of physical and mental rehabilitation, all the while dealing with the constant media attention that the attack has generated.
Today, Kathrein gives lectures on shark conservation, as well as on such topics as avoiding shark attacks when you re in the water. In this book, he not only writes of his ordeal, but also delves into shark behavior, and explains his desire to spread shark awareness.
