A significant portion of the world's shark populations have been wiped out due to fishing, shark finning and shark mitigation strategies. With some species declining in numbers as much as 90%.
As a result, between 70 and 100 million sharks die each year.
Sea Shepherd's Apex Harmony Campaign has a presence where shark nets and drumlines are installed to monitor and document these initiatives and expose the flaws of the governing policies and the false sense of security these nets and drumlines provide.
Part of the solution is to work with the local population, provide an overview of the alternatives so communties can make informed decisions about what they want.
Sharks are essential to the health of our oceans, and ultimately the survival of humankind.
