In the United States, one person dies of a shark attack every two years. While sharks are generally not threatening towards humans, public perception is that they are oceanic killing machines. This infographic was created as an easy way for people to see where shark attacks occur and provide some basic, common sense suggestions for how to avoid an attack while at the beach.

All data obtained from the International Shark Attack File provided by the Ichthyology Department at the Florida Museum of Natural History.
