California's Great White Sharks Need Our Help, Not Our Fear

California's Great White Sharks Need Our Help, Not Our Fear | Garry Rogers Nature Conservation News | Scoop.it

About the Petition

The number of adult great whites swimming off our Pacific Coast is alarmingly low, and they are losing their pups to deadly gillnets. If something doesn't change, they could disappear forever.

We shouldn't be scared of sharks, we should be scared for them.

Great whites help keep the ocean food web healthy and stable as they hunt their prey. Our oceans need sharks. We're petitioning the state of California to protect great whites as an endangered species. Please help us protect these iconic sharks — before it's too late.

Garry Rogers's insight:

Please sign the petition.

A pair of amateur conservationists film themselves removing a fishing hook from a shark's mouth off the coast of Jupiter, Florida
Garry Rogers's insight:

Humans need to recognize they have a great opportunity to care for nature.  We can assist rather than destroy plants, animals, and soils.  We are the only species that can do this, it needs doing, so let's do it.
