Sharks... Predator or Prey?
Most people today are all too happy to protect a butterfly or bird when it comes to conservation. It makes us feel good, especially if what we are helping to protect is cute and cuddly. We protect the Majestic Bald Eagle, the Proud Buffalo, and even the Graceful Mountain Lion. But Sharks? Mindless killing machines? Why worry about them?
The fact is that global shark populations are dramatically dropping. Many species of sharks have reproduction cycles that simply can not keep up with the over fishing, finning, sport fishing and accidental kills that are reducing their numbers.
Another fact is that Sharks are not the mindless man-eaters we think they are. Marine Biologists, Scientists, and Researchers are learning more and more about these magnificent creatures and their place in the sea. From socialization, migration, and habitat, to understanding more about how sharks think; much has been discovered with even more to learn.
Instead of buying in to the myths about sharks, we need to educate ourselves. Take a look at them and learn the facts. Sharks help to maintain a balance in our seas and they need our help. Although I am no expert in the field of sharks, I've built this site to help educate others like me and provide information, and links to those who are experts.
It is my belief that you may just find that Humankind is the Predator and Sharks the Prey. ~Graceful Catshark~
