Helping Sharks – Aware Project Shark

awaresh

Scientists from the International Union of Conservation of Nature (IUCN), are warning that more than a third of sharks living in the wild are threatened with extinction. Some species have reduced their population by up to 90% in the last two years! The main cause is unfortunately human activity, of which the shark has become a victim. The rate at which these beautiful predators are hunted exceeds their reproductive capacity and they are therefore in serious trouble

The disappearance of a predator so high up the food chain will have dramatic effects and changes on the entire ecosystem. Swift and decisive action is needed. For these amazing creatures to have a chance of survival, there needs to be an effectively enforced ban on fishing for their fins, appropriate international fisheries regulations (especially within the EU), a reduction in consumer demand, but also an expansion of efforts to protect sharks and their habitats. Together with divers and volunteers, the project aims to conduct research to better understand these predators, but it also wants to educate and raise awareness by sharing its knowledge with people.

Everyone who is not indifferent to the fate of these amazing creatures can contribute to protecting them and saving them from imminent extinction. At the link provided here, you can read the petition and give your support by filling it in. It is true that in Poland shark products are not as popular as in other parts of the world, but by not showing interest in them, we are also helping to save sharks.

It is a worthy cause and it is worth getting involved in. We cannot afford to lose such wonderful creatures as sharks. We need to put aside our prejudices, forget the fear that the very thought of these “monsters” evokes and get to know their true face. We need to take action here and now, because there is no more time to waste.
