Why study sharks?

- As apex predators, sharks are at the top of the marine ecosystem. Which means that they play a crucial role in maintaining population balance and the health of the ocean.
- Live sharks are also an important tourist draw in many parts of the world.
- Shark populations are in sharp decline due to overfishing; many species of sharks are near extinction.
- Public ignorance and commonly held misconceptions only contribute to the problem.
- The global impact of losing our sharks will be profound.
- We can improve matters by educating one person at a time.

What will learn from this course

- Greater appreciation for one of the planet`s oldest creatures
