Today, we dove into the oceans of the world to discuss the importance of sharks in our society!
While the media has portrayed these creatures as “menaces” or “beasts”, sharks are a key factor to keeping their environment in tact. Think of the food chain. Sharks eat something else that eats something else, and population control is a real issue in the ocean.
The hunting of sharks are the main reason for such a significant drop in population. Skin, meat, and fins are all profitable parts that are taken away from sharks for our own personal gain. Shark support groups use Shark Awareness Day, every year on this date, to protect and preserve the integrity and importance of these creatures that sit atop the food chain.
Congratulations to Maude from Mount Vernon on correctly guessing this week’s trivia and earning a $5 gift card to Everlasting Cup!
Thanks for listening!
