MOZAMBICAN SHARK FINNING TRADE CONTINUES UNCHECKED AS GREAT WHITE SHARK IS KILLED ON THE BEACH IN INHAMBANE PROVINCE: For most people, the great white shark is the ocean’s most iconic predator. It is the ultimate embodiment of nature’s power and an example of beauty at its most raw. It is quite simply, the undisputed sovereign of the sea. With this in mind, it is easy to understand why the Shark Angels found the photos of fishermen in Inhambane province in Mozambique dragging a white shark ashore last Monday so heartbreaking. These photos represented human greed at its worst; a greed so great that the degradation of the proudest shark in the sea is no longer seen as an atrocity by local people- instead, it has become a way of life.
Many Shark Angels are respected scientists and marine biologists whose work has contributed much to the preservation of sharks and the oceans. In our fifth year, Shark Angels is thrilled to announce a more formal involvement with scientists spearheading important research projects geared towards the conservation of sharks. Their hard work is fundamental to understanding and protecting sharks and we are pleased to be a part of it.
Who knew that Tiger Sharks were so funny? According to the kinder class of a Los Angeles Elementary school they are quite the digestive diva's! I It's probably because they eat almost everything including slimy shoes and beer cans, but enough about those funny Tiger sharks. Shark Angels came to talk about Shark Fin Soup! I explained that our sharky friends are in serious trouble, and it was time that we all became voices for them. I spoke about what really goes on with shark finning and how they come to the soup bowls of millions of people. The kids were not impressed, they were angry. "Why would people want that soup?! Tell them to stick with Chicken Noodle , it will make them feel better." blurted a young boy who had to stand up and shout this! Loved his enthusiasm I tell ya.

Sharks kill fewer than 4 humans on average each year, while humans kill an estimated 100 million sharks annually.
Sharks have been honed to perfection, having existed on this planet for over 400 million years.
Sharks play a vital role at the top of the food chain by maintaining balance in the oceans.
* An estimated 73 million sharks are killed each year (that works out to more than 10,000 sharks per hour).
Shark fins are tasteless, and may contain high levels of toxic methyl-mercury.
Only a small number of countries have banned finning - many more need to be encouraged to enact legislation.
Many people assume that because they don’t eat shark fin soup – then they can’t possibly be contributing to the demise of the sharks and rays.
