What @richardbranson says about sharks after Mick Fanning's amazing escape:
is using Mick Fanning’s recent brush with death in South Africa to call for greater protection for all sharks . He urged in a recent blog post that “the coverage of this highly unusual event should not be used as an excuse to mount further campaigns to kill even more sharks.” Fanning fought off a shark during the J-Bay Open surfing competition by punching the shark and then swimming away. Though he escaped unharmed, Fanning has said that it could be months before he can get back into the water.
