“A Shark bite is only one of many possible endings to a Shark Attack”
“An UNPROVOKED Shark Attack is only one of many types of Shark Attack”

Caution:
When you see the words Unprovoked or Bite associated with Shark Attacks, someone is trying to hide shark dangers you may face should you enter the water. In most cases, the word unprovoked equals the number of incidents shared with the public. Any other type of Shark Attack is kept a secret from the public.

Galapagos National Park Shark Attack Research
UPDATED: The Galapagos National Park (GNP) initiated monitoring of sharks in the marine
reserve in the archipelago after the Tuesday afternoon a shark attacked a man surfing on a
beach on the island of Santa Cruz.
The Universe the surfer identified as Diego Intriago 29 years. The newspaper reported that the
Director of Ecosystem Galapagos, Danny Rueda, National Park (GNP) reported that the average
shark calculated between 1.5 and 2 meters. Intriago has a 40 cm superficial wound in the leg and
immediately received first aid and was taken to hospital where he is recovering.
The DNPG are investigating what kind of shark bit a Intriago since there are two in the area:
sharks and black fin sharks. The newspaper says the GNP that these species are not aggressive
against humans but to warn the public to stay alert and not enter the water if they detect the
presence of sharks.

USE COMMON SENSE
A simple explanation of the word unprovoked is chosen to be shared. Each year shark attack researchers choose certain shark attacks they share with the public. The ISAF website states, “All of the data publically available on the ISAF website is from unprovoked incidents.” Ocean users, beware that the ISAF has 6800 incidents on file, with only 3292, or 47%, being chosen to be shared with the public. In 2019 they chose 45%, and in 2020 they only chose 44% of the investigated incidents.
