What Can Be Done to Save Sharks

what_can_be_done_Jonny_V_longlineSea Shepherd Fights to Save Sharks by:

  • Confiscating tens of thousands of illegally obtained shark fins, leading to multiple arrests.
  • Pulling in thousands of miles of longlines with baited hooks and freeing entangled animals.
  • Partnering with Ecuadorian environmental police to form a special K-9 unit to sniff for shark fins.
  • Developing intelligence networks to assist in the seizure of shark fins from protected areas.
  • Educating the public via printed materials, presentations, videos, and restaurant campaigns.
  • Co-founded the Shark Angels Alliance. One of the main goals of this project is to capture the Shark Angels representatives interacting with sharks in a short film that will help to open the hearts and minds of the public and increase awareness of the plight of sharks and their struggle for survival as a species.
  • Maintaining a permanent presence in the Galapagos Marine Reserve to defend against poachers.

Myth:  Sharks are bloodthirsty man-eaters and ruthless killing machines.

Reality:  More people are killed each year by falling vending machines than by sharks.
