It's shark awareness day! These wonderful animals are not at all as dangerous or bloodthirsty as the media make them! To the contrary, every year only about 7 people are killed by shark attacks. On the other side, a shocking 100 million (!!) sharks are being killed by humans every year. Many are hunted for their fins, which are processed into shark soup or aphrodisiac, but many sharks also die needlessly as by-catch in fishing nets. The impact of ocean plastic pollution on these sensitive animals has not yet been studied. Meanwhile, almost every shark species is threatened with extinction. Thus, man has achieved within a very short time what nature has not managed for over 400 million years (did you know that sharks appeared in the seas 200 million years BEFORE the dinosaurs?).Share this post to draw attention to the suffering of these incredible animals and to stop the negative, fear-inspiring coverage in the media. Sharks are extremely important for a healthy marine ecosystem. They do not feed on humans! And we humans are definitely a greater threat to the shark than it is to us.
