Sharks have survived 5 mass extinctions – including the one that killed the dinosaurs – but will they survive mankind? Nearly one in four shark species are currently threatened with extinction due to human activities like overfishing and shark finning.
Sharks play a key role in maintaining the health of coral reefs by balancing prey populations, contributing to carbon cycling, and promoting ecotourism. They are gentle, inquisitive creatures, and unfortunately globally endangered as a result of climate change, overfishing, and the rising demand for shark fins. Please help spread the word: sharks are friends 💙 Find out more about shark conservation at https://www.robstewartsharkwaterfoundation.org
