The International Year of the Shark 2009

The International Year of the Shark 2009 was inspired by the finding that at the current rate, common shark species will be extinct in 10 to 15 years.

In large regions, species that were once numerous have fallen to 1% of their original numbers. Studies of open ocean sharks estimate 80 to 90% of heavily fished species are gone. Yet these intelligent animals, also called the “Wolves of the Sea” are still fished intensively, and finned for “shark fin soup.” The oceans have evolved over hundreds of millions of years with sharks as apex predators, so their loss will destroy oceanic health.

  • Cristina - great Outreach!
    Source. Brava! Once again, this is as good as it gets. Really nice to see her evolving from prominent dive instructor doing tricks with Sharks to respected international Shark conservation advocate. And I find this.
