The Important thing about Eugenie Clark

The Important Thing About Eugenie Clark

By Cami


The important thing about Eugenie Clark is that she dove with sharks. When Eugenie Clark was about nine, she went to an aquarium and saw all the fish and liked them, but her favorite fish of all were the sharks. She loved them a lot. Once, when Eugenie clark went swimming in the ocean she came across a shark, but when she saw the shark she didn’t scream, she didn’t swim away, instead she pet the shark gently like the shark was her pet. She trusted her instincts and she is a good role model for young girls like me. Sadly, in February 25, 2015 Eugenie Clark died. Still, a lot of people still dive for sharks and maybe one day I will dive for sharks like Eugenine Clark.

  1. Dear Cami,
    I loved your explorer post! Did you know that my mom’s birthday is the same day that Eugenie Clark died? I think that shark diving is very interesting but I don’t think that I would like to do it.

    I like how you told that she is a good role model for girls our age! I think that it is good that you got inspired by her to dive with sharks! 😀 😛

  2. I like how you said that she’s a role model for young girls like you and me. Isn’t she also a role model for young boys too?

    I also like how you made a connection to her, by saying, when I’m older I might what to swim with sharks, I think it is pretty cool that you where able to make a connection with Eugenie Clark.
