Sharks are the ultimate predator animal in the ocean, but there’s another species that’s wiping them out in a hurry – humans.
You wouldn’t know it by reading all the news headlines lately, but humans are actually a far greater threat to sharks than they are to us. This nifty infographic breaks down all the numbers for you, and will surely put things into perspective.
Every year, tons of research is done on sharks as we try to learn more about them. Their unpredictable and aggressive behavior has no doubt earned them a bad reputation, but looking at these figures, it’s important that we start practicing better conservation of these creatures. If not, an entire ecosystem could suffer, and future generations will no longer have the opportunity to tangle with the ocean’s top predator.
