Ok, so maybe I'm not the best at typing out famous movie scores, but I bet you know what I'm going for. With just two notes, we are all afraid off the water.
With massive teeth and powerful bodies, it is understandable why lots of people are scared of sharks. But the way that we've been treating them, they should be scared of us!
And we should be scared FOR sharks.
It can be hard to believe that such powerful animals are in danger but due to overfishing, shark populations have plummeted over the past few decades. "So what?", you may say.
So this - as the big granddaddy predators of the oceans, sharks are super important to keeping ecosystems in balance. Simply put, healthy oceans need sharks.
Oceana is fighting for shark protections all over the world. In the US, Congress just passed the Shark Conservation Act, so we've got to make sure it is enforced. In Europe, we are fighting for better shark fisheries management. And as a GuideStar 4-star ranked charity, you know your donation is going to good use.
Sharks may scare you, but an ocean without sharks is even scarier.
