Please Help Sharks
Sharks are one of the oldest creatures on Earth. As apex predators, they play a crucial role in the ocean ecosystem, keeping marine life in balance. But due to their poor public image, sharks rarely get the support or help they need.
Sharks are hunted for their meat and fins – a practice that is still legal in many countries. In a recent study in Myeik Archipelago, 90% of fishermen observed that the number of sharks and rays were declining.
It is a terrifying prospect to imagine what could happen if they were to disappear – sharks have existed since the time of the dinosaurs and ocean life has evolved with them. The implications would be disastrous, not just for sharks and rays, but for the wider marine environment and the people who depend on it.
And many sharks and ray species are highly vulnerable – they grow slowly, mature late, and have alarmingly low reproductive rates.
We must protect them, and we must act fast.
Your gift could make the difference for sharks and other marine species. Scientists from FFI are working hard to address the threats and increase the number of protected areas for these precious marine species.
So please, donate today and help save sharks. Let’s turn the tide for these monumental species.
Fauna & Flora International (FFI) is the world’s oldest international conservation charity. Over the last 100 years, we have been on almost every frontline of conservation and literally saved species from extinction. We work to protect plants and animals around the globe – never wasting enormous sums of money on excessive publicity or silly gimmicks – instead spending 94% of our income on charitable activities.
If you value the natural world – if you think it should be protected for its own sake as well as humanity’s – then please support Fauna & Flora International.
