Researchers fear a newest tourist craze may be upsetting sharks’ natural behavior.
Two scientists with a passion for venomous snakes, aggressive sharks, and lethal jellyfish throw their hearts and bodies into saving any dangerous species in need of rescue. As humans encroach upon wild habitats, Jamie Seymour and Richard Fitzpatrick closely study human - animal interactions to ensure human safety and animal survival. They dive into the water with a deadly box jellyfish to test a prototype protective suit, swim amongst venomous sea snakes to collect and create antivenom, and brave crocodiles to capture endangered sawfish. Using advanced laboratory biotechnology, the Strike Force team collects samples and animals to study human impact and how to better interact with wild animals.
