Sharks - probably the most misunderstood animal ever, hated and feared all over the world because of simple misunderstandings and a media that thrives on sensational news. As we have come to understand over the years, sharks don't make great PR-people for their own kind, so we have taken up the cause for them.
The simple fact is that sharks really aren't that dangerous to humans. In 2017 alone, 5 fatalities from shark attacks occurred worldwide. Meanwhile, 25 people died from dog attacks in the USA alone that same year! And our simple question for you today is: Are you afraid of sharks? If so, why? 📸 Eric Cheng
Earlier this week, Operation Apex Harmony found a 2.5 metre female tiger shark hanging from a drumline at Kellys Beach in Queensland. She suffered, stuck on this hook for more than 30 hours before she was shot by authorities. This is how Queensland's Shark Control Program works and it's been done this way since 1962. Today, we have drones, clever buoys, shark spotters and many other options that are all non-lethal methods that the government could use instead of these baited hooks. Sharks are essential for keeping our oceans healthy, eating sick and weak fish. Without a healthy ocean we don't have a healthy planet.

Every species in our oceans needs to be protected and loved...no matter how "feared" they may be. This amazing group of people save the life of this great white shark who had become beached. Much love and respect to everyone in this group for their efforts!
Great White Sharks are such beautiful and impressive animals... Hope that people will soon lose their fear created by stupid shark related movies 🦈💙 Video: @davesandford
