Restoring Ocean Health by Saving Sharks
100,000,000 sharks and rays are killed for their fins each year. 90% of several species are completely gone. Today 25% of all sharks and rays are threatened or near threatened with extinction. Nearly half are missing the scientific data to manage and protect them.
