Every day the world's shark population shrinks.

Some estimates suggest that over 100 million sharks are slaughtered every year, most of these for their fins alone. 'Finning' or the killing of sharks and dumping of their carcass after the dorsal fin is removed is the primary culprit for the massive numbers of sharks killed annually.

At this rate, the risk of extinction draws ever closer for certain species.

If you want to do something about it, we have gathered some resources below to help you get started. There are many like minded people who also want to help and anything you can do will help.
