Ban shark finning before they're gone for good!
Contrary to their reputation, sharks are an increasingly threatened group of animals. Sitting at the top of the food chain, many shark species are not used to being the victim of other predators. Over the millions of years they have swum the oceans, sharks have evolved reproductive strategies that suit animals that would naturally only ever die of old age. This means they are not easily able to replenish their numbers when their mortality rate increases and are extremely vulnerable to over-fishing.
