Sharks—sleek, fast-moving predators with powerful jaws—can take care of themselves, right? Wrong! Thanks to humans, many shark species are officially endangered and some iconic sharks even face extinction. This has happened through demand for shark fin soup, big-game fishing, ocean pollution, and other threats to their survival. Discover why sharks need our protection and why we need them. True stories and fascinating science combined with superb photographs explain how these incredible hunters have become the hunted—and also how we can protect them in the future.
