Saving Sharks

You won’t find sharks in the tidepools at FMR, but as top predators they are important to the overall health of the oceans. And, like so many denizens of the deep these days, they are in trouble due to overfishing.

KQED’s QUEST has a great short  video (under 12 minutes) that highlights research being done on great white sharks in the Farallon Islands and has great information on why sharks around the world need our protection.

And the Monterey Bay Aquarium has more information on shark conservation, including support for a new bill that could become California law, on their web site.
