"When a coastal region has a great white shark problem, it generally means that a clear and present danger exists for water users," but "Right now, every surfer/thrill seeker with a GoPro is going out to Manhattan Beach and trying to film them, ride them, and catch them on hook and line," said Christopher Lowe, a Cal State Long Beach professor and white shark expert.

Leopard sharks flourishing in south San Francisco Bay as wetlands are restored
Nice article about a local predator and the recovery of San Francisco Bay Area’s wetlands. I studied these beautiful animals in La Jolla, California. The article discusses a diet study method, gastric lavage, first used with leopards as a project developed by Mark Royer and our team at SIO. It also does a nice job of pointing out “in any natural area, when large predators come back, that’s good news.”
Only issue? Paul Rogers attempts to convey leopard sharks’ docile behaviour by stating “Unlike their great-white cousins, leopard sharks don’t eat people.” Neither shark eats people. “Bite” is a better word choice.
