Who are Shark Guardian & why do we support them?
Shark Guardian is an organization dedicated to the conservation of sharks through education, promoting research, and protection and sustainability of the marine habitat to safeguard the future of these amazing fish. One of their primary ventures is the Shark Guardian presentation, a multi media production for all ages aimed at bringing awareness to the important role sharks play in our marine ecosystems as well as our planets future and the need to protect them. It combines education on the different species, interesting facts, conservation and what we can do to make a difference in maintaining their survival.
Why are sharks so important?
Sharks have survived almost 450 million years, maintaining the delicate balance of our marine ecosystem. They are at the top of the ocean food chain and are vital to maintaining a healthy ocean balance and are an important indicator of our ocean's health. They even indirectly maintain coral reefs and sea grasses which produce most of the world’s oxygen. Depletion and elimination of the shark population would cause an imbalance in the equilibrium of our oceans and have devastating effects on the earth’s environment.
