BBC Nature says give sharks a break

BBC Nature have put together an interesting and informative factfile on shark conservation. Entitled 'The ultimate image problem' the article gives an easily readable overview on the threats to shark populations.

Links at the sides invite the reader to read about the plights of individual species.

"If ever an animal needed a spin doctor, it's the shark. Of the 490 species, only 12 are dangerous to humans yet 20 are threatened with extinction and that number is increasing rapidly. We're more likely to eat sharks than they are to eat us so isn't it time we gave Jaws a break"
