SHARKS: A great & misunderstood species

SURVIVING CLIMATE CHANGE UNDERWATER
Since the beginning of time, this fascinating, greatly feared, and misunderstood species has been around: Sharks, let’s get to know them.
Sharks have roamed the oceans long before trees were even a thing. They are some of the only animals to have survived all 5 massive extinctions. Although feared by many, it’s a fear that’s been motivated mostly by films.
While sharks are not found to be a true threat to humans, they are feared more than other animals. For example, cows are found to be quite dangerous, but bovinophobia, the fear of cattle, is not quite as common.
Sharks are not only one of the oldest and most fascinating species on earth, but they are also essential for the conservation of our reefs. They allow for smaller reef fish to take care of the corals by taking care of the bigger predators, and so on.
Like the rest of all wonderful species on earth, sharks have a place and a role to play.
An estimated 100 million sharks are killed yearly, this does not only affect them but all ecosystems around them as well. Shark-killing competitions are a big part of this. They have been around for a long time, but this time should be cut short, now.
On July 9th, 2022 a shark killing competition is scheduled to be held in Jupiter, Florida, which is home to many of the species.
By speaking out and taking action on this and other similar events that partake in causing harm to other species for pure enjoyment, we not only fight to protect the earth, the oceans, the animals, and us, but we are fighting for the future generation’s earth too.
