African Shark Eco-Charters loves it when people take a stand to help save sharks, and we just have to applaud these groups of shark attack survivors who have joined together to help save sharks in our oceans.
A group of nine shark attack survivors, including Australian navy diver Paul de Gelder, gathered at the United Nations in New York to shed light on the fact that their attackers, including the Great White Shark, desperately need protecting. They have lost legs, arms, and ankle parts, and yet they still believe that our ocean’s greatest predators have more to reason to fear the water than us humans do – and we at African Shark Eco-Charters have to agree.
With around 73 million sharks being killed annually to meet the demand for shark fin soup in Asia, excessive overfishing is driving many species to the brink of extinction and now more than ever, we need to get the world to see that it’s time to help save sharks in our oceans.
Scientists say that wiping out our ocean’s greatest predators is creating a destructive ripple effect throughout marine ecosystems. Helps save sharks by educating others on the crucial role that sharks play in maintaining a healthy ocean.
These shark attack survivors have been fighting to put a ban to all shark finning, where fishermen cut off the sharks fins and throw the gravely injured sharks back into the sea, and for strict catch limits to be imposed worldwide.
Join African Shark Eco-Charters on our Great White Shark breaching and cage diving trips, and let us show you why we feel that our sharks are worth protecting. Join us and many more people throughout the world in the fight to help save sharks!
