Why sharks matter!
Sharks play a very important role in balancing the marine environment and provide stability to many other marine ecosystems.
Shark conservation has become an increasingly important practice due to the negative effects of human activity on these amazing creatures.
One third of all shark species are considered either Vulnerable, Endangered or Critically Endangered as listed by the IUCN (International Union for the Conservation of Nature).
Unregulated shark fishing is killing millions of sharks every year!
70-120 Million sharks are killed each year.
Some shark populations have decreased by more than 90% in certain areas and one third of all sharks are threatened with extinction.
