Everything you ever wanted to know about sharks

Sharks are fascinating hunters. They should not be feared but respected because they have an important regulatory function in our oceans.
Their biology is not primitive but highly complex. Accidents with humans occur very rarely, even though the media like to play up any events. Sharks are not a threat to us but we are certainly a threat to sharks. Find out here why sharks need to be protected.

Biology

On these pages you will find information about the habitat, evolution, characteristics, anatomy, senses and the reproduction of sharks.

Hunted Hunters

Sharks are endangered on all fronts. They are overfished, their fins are cut off and their habitats and nurseries are being destroyed by global warming and plastic.

Accidents

In this section you will find facts about rare accidents, information about sharks that pose a danger to humans and what you can do to prevent accidents.

Protection

We must rid ourselves of any prejudices we have against sharks. Only together can we improve their protection.
