Swimming with Sharks Presented by Bill Henschke

Posted by heatherm

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to swim with a shark? Most people in the non-diving community do not realize how important sharks are to the health of our oceans. Every other breath we take, the oxygen contained within that breath, comes from the ocean and sharks play an important role in keeping our oceans clean. Bill Henschke’s scuba diving has taken him on many trips ranging from the Pacific to the Atlantic and points in-between. From all of Bill’s encounters he feels that sharks are probably the most misunderstood animal on the planet. Come to the Hershey Public Library to hear about Bill’s experiences at Tiger Beach located 25 miles off Grand Bahama, where he was able to interact with tigers, great hammerheads, reef, lemon and nurse sharks all on one dive along with many other of his adventures.
