Operation Apex Harmony
Why are Sharks Important?
As apex predators, sharks have shaped marine life in the oceans for over 450 million years and are essential to the health of our oceans, and ultimately to the survival of humankind.
Studies are already indicating that regional elimination of sharks can cause disastrous effects including the collapse of fisheries and the death of coral reefs.
"If there is one message we are trying to get across here is it that, if we can't save the whales, and the sharks, the turtles, the fish, the great whites and tiger sharks, we are not going to save the oceans. And if the oceans die, we die; we can’t live on this planet with a dead ocean" - Captain Paul Watson.
