It’s Shark Week and you know what that means: 24/7 coverage of some of the oceans’ most alluring predators. But what you may not know is sharks are in danger from the world’s most terrifying predators: humans.
Sharks are being fished faster than they can reproduce and their numbers are declining – and fast. Some U.S. hammerhead populations have dropped an alarming 98% in recent decades.
If we keep fishing at this rate, soon there will be no more sharks swimming in our waters and Shark Week will be our only chance to see these amazing creatures.
We want the U.S. government to limit fishing of the most threatened sharks. Speak up now to protect our sharks.
