What You Can Do

There are many things you can do to help save the sharks.  The first and easiest step is to become aware.  Reading this website is a step toward the right direction but it is just the beginning.  Do as much research as you can on the subject and become informed.

Next is spread the word.  Many people are unaware of the endangered statues of over 200 species of sharks.  Just by spreading the word you are helping save sharks.

Also refuse to buy any shark products, including shark tooth jewelry.

If you are a fisher, avoid shark infested waters to be sure of any accidental catches.

Call up your TV station and complain if for the hundredth time they show “The White Shark” or some similar sensation film involving sharks and shark attacks.

If you read articles or see TV transmissions which portray sharks as being bloodthirsty monsters, write to the authors or those responsible. Explain that such sensation reports are extremely damaging to the worldwide shark populations.

For a more active was to get involved support the Shark Foundation.

I am aware some of these measures may seem extreme.  But sharks can not speak for themselves and they need us to protect them.  By protecting them, we are essentially protecting ourselves and our ecosystem.
