Last year’s Animal Planet special on mermaids, called Mermaids: The Body Found, was immensely popular, and resulted in a lot of people asking themselves – and others – whether mermaids are real. It actually was asked so often that the US government felt compelled to issue a statement to the effect that there is no evidence of mermaids.
Tomorrow Animal Planet airs the show again, followed by a new show with additional ‘evidence’.
Here is an excellent interview with the producer.
Also, there was an excellent article a couple days ago about this upcoming show and its context in terms of ocean conservation, by Brenda Peterson.
Now we are all holding our breath waiting for the new show.
