Sharks may be coming to Britain

Posted by on July 23, 2018

Over the past few weeks, the weather in the UK has been scorching and this increase in heat has seen some wildlife opting to visit Britain. Only a few days ago a shark was spotted off the coast of Cornwall in St Ives. The warmer weather is making the sea in Britain bearable for these mammals and as temperatures rise we can expect to see more and more of them.

Recent studies that have been carried out suggest that we could see a number of shark species start to inhabit the UK in as little as thirty years. This could make our beaches a totally different place to visit and may leave many people nervous to go into the sea.

It’s not only sharks that are coming to Britain but also large jellyfish. We do have a few different sorts of jellyfish in the UK already but over the next ten years, we may see an increase in this and some new species coming to pay a visit. Much of this is due to climate change that is seeing our sea temperatures rising year after year.  This is only a small concern for some of the many scientists who are worried about the effects of global warming on our planet.
