You don’t know much about sharks, do you?
I don’t need to know crap about sharks to know they have no point to life but to eat things. So I don’t really care about anything else. .. .
Actually they have plenty of point in life. They keep the populations of species lower in the food chain in check, ensuring only the healthiest, strongest animals survive to breed. They pretty much shape the evolution of other species. They themselves are also important food sources for some orca populations.
And they are intelligent, curious creatures that get a bad rep because people don’t know crap about them and refuse to learn. It’s fear of the unknown.
Did you know you are more likely to die from being crushed under a falling vending machine than you are to be killed by a shark? Did you know elephants and tigers kill more people per year than sharks? Did you know that several of the species listed in the image above have never killed human beings?
Sharks are heading for extinction at the hands of human beings. They are persecuted by the ignorant. Our oceans provide more oxygen than all of Earth’s rainforests combined, and wiping out the top predator from such a delicate ecosystem is going to result in our own extinction in a very short period of time.
So you should damn well care.
