Bear Grylls proves Shark Shield technology works in Shark Week Special

(PRWEB)July 29, 2018

To celebrate Shark Week, notorious adventurer Bear Grylls has filmed a special titled ‘Bear vs Bull Shark’ for The Discovery Channel. As a protection method Bear successfully tested out Ocean Guardian’s FREEDOM7, powered by Shark Shield technology.

Amanda Wilson, General Manager of Ocean Guardian USA says, “We couldn’t ask for a better organic demonstration of the products efficacy in a real-life scenario with a human as essentially the bait. He was not paid for the segment, nor did we provide the unit for free, he obviously genuinely wanted to test it out for himself.”

The segment clearly shows the Ocean Guardian FREEDOM7, featuring the world’s only scientifically proven and independently tested electrical shark deterrent – and proven to deter Great Whites, in action and clearly deterring the hammer heads and bull sharks surrounding him.

“The technology has been tested and proven time and time again, however this is the first time a human has tested the unit by pouring chum and bait over themselves and filmed it in as we say ‘sharky’ waters. For all those people out there, who have questioned if it works, here’s your proof,” said Amanda.
