The ‘Thor’ actor is teaming up with conservationist Valerie Taylor to uncover the science of shark behavior in an upcoming National Geographic special.
AceShowbiz –Chris Hemsworth is to front a documentary about Shark Beach.
The actor, who recently wrapped his upcoming movie “Thor: Love and Thunder“, will take part in a special dive, surrounded by nurse sharks, for a documentary on National Geographic “WILD“, which will premiere on 12 July (21) at 9 pm ET.
The programme – which forms part of a larger Sharkfest week on the channel – will see Chris “go on a mission to uncover the science of shark behaviour and discover how humans and sharks can safely coexist.”
The description reads, “After an increase in local shark attacks along the east coast of Australia, Hemsworth seeks to understand different species of sharks and their behaviours while also exploring new preventative measures and the latest tech to help stave off shark-human encounters.”
Chris will dive alongside conservationist Valerie Taylor as they join forces to investigate how humans and sharks can live better together going into the future.
Janet Vissering, senior vice president of Development and Production, National Geographic Partners, added, “The mysteries of the ocean’s most iconic predators are so vast, even with eight years of shark-focused content under our belt, there still remains more to be discovered. Like every year, shark scientists and oceanic experts have pulled out all the stops for SHARKFEST, revealing new discoveries, shocking revelations and bizarre shark behaviour never seen before. It’s going to be jaw-some!”
Other programmes to feature during Sharkfest include “The Sharks of Hawaii“, “Shark Attack Files“, “Shark Gangs“, “Rogue Shark?“, and “Sand Eating Sharks“, amongst others.
