WHY SAVE SHARKS?

In 2014 studies carried out by specialists and 5 of the worlds leading marine science bodies estimated that between 63 million and 273 million sharks are killed each year! Sharks are vital to ocean ecosystems; as apex predators they play a critical role in balancing marine ecosystems; their decline is having catastrophic consequences, and there is a very real danger that shark populations will totally collapse and extinction will follow. We have no way of knowing what that could mean for marine ecosystems, but scientists are predicting very serious consequences that will effect us all.

 

The Fin Fighters network is operating several large scale shark conservation projects in the UK and worldwide, pioneering modern, exciting methods and tackling issues in a rhizomatic way. We are utilising creativity and skills within our network and encouraging participation from everyone in as many ways possible.
