Sharks have been around
for over 400 million years, yet they are vulnerable to the constant
impact of humans. Over 100 million sharks are slaughtered each year
& now the threat of extinction is a formidable one. They are being
killed faster than they can reproduce. It is said that by 2017, 20
species of sharks could become extinct. Conservation is at a
critical point; not only will it benefit the sharks, but the health
of the entire marine system.
