We very occasionally hear about Great White’s attacking people in the water. I was shocked, however, to hear that according to a naturalist slot on the news – man has now killed off, hunted, wiped out, destroyed over ninety percent (90%) of the world’s shark population. Most sharks are harmless and even frightened of man. They are a very ancient fish and have been around for more than 450 million years …. but at this rate this will be yet another creature hunted into extinction.
Perhaps we should really think about protecting sharks as they are an important part of the eco system and if we lose them what will this do to our planet?
