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.
Meanwhile, here is an excellent article on mermaid facts.
