Threatened shark species continue to be targeted, caught, and killed at an alarming rate.
You would think this is only happening in third-world countries, right?
Actually it’s happening right in our own backyard…
70 to 100 million sharks are killed every year despite sharks being a crucial part of preserving a healthy ocean ecosystem.
Commercial fishers and recreational anglers target sharks for the fin trade and find loopholes in existing regulations to continue the practice.
Nationally, there is a ban on shark fishing but it only outlaws removing fins from sharks in the water … so fishers can still legally remove them on land.
Florida has become the worst state in the United States for killing sharks. And conservationists are fighting for tougher laws.
Shark hunters reason that they are keeping our beaches safe, but at Karmagawa, we think that is total BS.
The brutal killings continue to happen and are increasing.
Sharks help control natural ecosystems and keep our oceans healthy and balanced … The same oceans in which we derive over 50 percent of our oxygen. It doesn’t matter where you live on the planet, we need to keep these animals safe!
And be sure to show them this powerful video …
The director/producer of “50 Minutes to Save the World,” Amir Zakeri, created a masterclass for us to help Karmagawa and SaveTheReef followers learn how to tell interesting stories through video — and you can get 50% off the regular price.
