Sharks have played a vital role in maintaining healthy oceans for hundreds of millions of years as a top predator. More than 450 species of sharks cruise the world’s oceans, ranging in size from 8 inches to a whopping 40 feet long. But today, nearly one in four sharks and their relatives are threatened with extinction.
One of the greatest threats to sharks is finning – cutting the fins off of a shark and discarding its body at sea, where it could drown or bleed to death. Driven by the demand for shark fin soup, fins from as many as 73 million sharks end up in the shark fin trade every year.
