Why study sharks?Shark Aware Conservation Specialty

– As apex predators, sharks are at the top of the marine ecosystem. Which means that they play a crucial role in maintaining population balance and the health of the ocean.
– Live sharks are also an important tourist draw in many parts of the world – think Whale Sharks in Ningaloo, Grey Nurses at Fish Rock, NSW.
– Shark populations are in sharp decline due to overfishing; many species of sharks are near extinction including our very own Grey Nurse.
– Public ignorance and commonly held misconceptions only contribute to the problem.
– The global impact of losing our sharks will be profound.
– We can improve matters by educating one person at a time.

What you will get out of this course

– Greater appreciation for one of the planet`s oldest creatures.
