shows a ferocious looking shark near a shipwreck. As climate change causes the oceans to warm, more sharks are spending time near people.

Shipwrecks off the North Carolina coast are important habitats for sand tiger sharks, a fierce-looking but docile species whose population plummeted in the 1980s and ’90s and is now listed as globally vulnerable by IUCN. Photo credit: John McCord, Coastal Studies Institute
