This article tackles the pros and cons of Jaws from a nature standpoint. Although the film led to an increase in shark killings, this article is quick to point out that the increased attention in sharks was also beneficial. “After the film's release, interest in sharks skyrocketed, resulting in increased funding for shark research.” With increased funding came increased knowledge, and scientists were able to learn more about sharks than ever before. As a result, we are beginning to learn more about the relationship between sharks and humans, and are beginning to understand that shark attacks often come as a result of sharks falsely thinking that humans are a predator. The article draws a clear distinction between educated scientists and common movie-goers. Even though the results continue to provide more conclusions that sharks aren’t out to get humans, the average person still views sharks as extremely dangerous. According to the article, “The reputation remains entrenched in the public psyche 30 years after the movie's release.” While scientists are using the benefits of Jaws to get more in-depth knowledge, the average person isn’t putting this information to its full use. Many people still suffer from a fear of sharks, while they really shouldn’t be so scared. It speaks wonders of Jaws that 30 years later it can still be so persuasive that it to a large extent overrides the research of scientists. This truly shows the power of Jaws and how it was able to adamantly convince beach-dwellers that they shouldn’t feel safe when they step foot in the ocean.
