Over 73 million sharks will be killed primarily for shark fin soup. That’s over 11,400 an hour. Shark finning is the practice of catching a shark, slicing off its fins and dumping the still living shark back into the ocean. Shark fins are tasteless and contain high levels of toxic methyl-mercury.
Sharks kill fewer than 5 humans on average each year. While humans kill 73 million sharks annually. You are more likely to be killed by a lightning strike, bee sting or falling coconut.
The oceans are the most important ecosystem on the planet, containing life that absorbs most of the carbon dioxide, converting them into 70% of the oxygen we breathe. Destroying shark population is destroying our oceans and our life support system.
So make your decision. Save our Sharks!
