In 2021, shark attacks have increased in the world. However, in the previous three years, shark attacks were significantly lower. Even though the beaches were almost closed due to the epidemic in 2020, a significant number of attacks were recorded during this time.

This information was given in a report of ABCNews on Tuesday (January 25).

Researchers say sharks attacked 63 people worldwide last year. In 2020 this number was 52 people. The Florida Museum of Natural History and the American Elasmobranch Society conduct research activities.

Tyler Bowling, international shark attack file manager, said sharks attacked 52 people in 2020, the lowest in a decade. This is due to the Corona epidemic. Attacks on white sharks, bull sharks and tiger sharks have also been reported.

If someone provokes a shark, the shark will deliberately attack humans. Last year, 11 people were killed in shark attacks. Two of them died due to agitation of sharks. Three died in Australia last year, two in New Caledonia. In the United States, Brazil, New Zealand and South Africa, one person died. However, none of them aroused the shark.

Sharks are one of the most endangered species in the world. Surfers are often attacked by this animal. Although sharks are dangerous animals, they are not the only ones that attack. Basically, it is possible to maintain a safe distance from them.
