Today is WorldOceanDay Apart from depleting our oceans by over-fishing humans kill 100 Mil. Sharks per year, mostly for their fins.That’s around 3.6 sharks per second killed and only 0,94 born are born. We humans kill sharks more than 3 times faster than they can reproduce. We need the shark it’s a reef cleaner, it eats old and sick fish. If you would like to know more about sharks and our marine life conservation projects please visit.
This is a zebra shark (Stegostoma fasciatum) it is an Endangered species! Often mixed up with the Leopard Shark due to its Pattern. It’s called Zebra shark because as a juvenile it does have the black and white stripes of a zebra. This Zebra #Shark is 2,5m in length and is nocturnal laying on sandy patches and the seafloor during daytime. That u see one swimming during daytime is pure luck! The zebra shark is oviparous which means the female lays eggs. Taken by underwater photographer Daniel Sasse.
