What beach do you swim at? Shark attacks can occur anywhere at any time, but are there certain locations around Hawaii that shark attacks happen more often than others? Come and look at the map and other statistics related to shark attacks as well as shark jaws, teeth, a fin, and sharks in jars. Visit the display, which will be up until December 29, in Hamilton Library's Science and Technology Reference Department.
