Oh, I see now. Aside from shark week. (Sometimes I don’t read so well.)
Might I recommend the library?

Sorry, that was the educator in me speaking out.

A suggestion from me is to search the local marinas and museums along coastal areas to see what types of online resources they offer for studying sharks. You can watch a video or you can read about it online. But try to make a connection to someone in the field or watch a live webcam of a group of rehabilitating sharks. Connecting to a person in the field or check out a volunteer group as well to find out more from them.

http://www.mote.org/ – Mote Marina in Sarasota, Florida. I visited this place years ago and they used to keep a live webcam running of their two rescued Manatees. Very cool place and a great start. Good luck.
