Shark Conservation

Author: Molly

Caption: Climate change is a naturally occurring prospect however we humans are greatly increasing the rate with our excessive use of fossil fuels and are constant polluting of the air. The ocean plays a large part in slowing this rapid pace with it being one of the largest carbon sinks, with it absorbing a lot of the carbon dioxide and other polluters. However, we do not treat the ocean with the respect it deserves, and we must remember it is a finite resource. When looking at sharks they are frequently overlooked as they are this daunting predator, however, they are a large aspect of the ocean’s ecosystem and play a part in the security of the oceans. They are extremely important and when looking at the Save The Med foundation it is evident that in general and specifically in the Mediterranean sharks need protection.
