As you read these lines, clock2 sharks will die - either because of their fins, as bycatch of swimming fish factories, for ineffective medicinal cartilage powder or through the destruction of their natural habitats.

Humans are a threat to sharks!

Without the ecologically important control mechanism exercised by sharks, our oceans would be in danger. Help us to protect these fascinating "hunted hunters".

The Shark Foundation was established to actively protect and research endangered shark species and and preserve their natural habitats.
