Sharks are awesome, right?! To humans, sharks are mysterious, scary, and pretty rad—but did you know that our fear and obsession with them is actually killing them?
Approximately 73 million sharks a year are slaughtered for their teeth, jaws, and fins, simply for human fascination. This fascination not only causes the unnecessary deaths of millions of sharks but also results in the unnatural imprisonment of sharks at SeaWorld. Celebrate Shark Week by speaking up for these misunderstood animals.
SHARK FINNING: COLDBLOODED CRUELTY FOR HOT SOUP
Every day, fishers catch sharks, cut off their fins, and throw the still-living sharks back into the ocean to bleed to death. This happens to millions of sharks every year around the world, just so that their fins can end up in a bowl of soup. Sharks are being pushed closer to extinction—95 percent of many species’ populations have been killed since the 1970s.

SEAWORLD: A PRISON FOR SHARKS
Sharks are denied everything that is natural and important to them at SeaWorld. In the wild, they swim hundreds of miles a day, but at SeaWorld, they’re confined to tiny tanks in which all they can do is swim back and forth all day.
In the wild, their athletic abilities are astounding. Great white sharks can jump up to 10 feet in the air, but in captivity, they have no room for athletics. They also don’t get to show their softer side: Some species of sharks, including whale sharks, have big families. A whale shark was once found carrying 300 live shark pups all at once!
