Again man's environmental impact comes under fire in this beautiful and moving picture about the decimation of shark populations in a world where no one seems to care. This picture gives you all the reasons you should care, including your own survival.
This movie goes perfectly with a BBC article...link here
Surprisingly Britain is the fourth largest shark fishing nation in Europe and there could be shark in your humble fish and chips.
Much of the time and attention of environment officials in Brussels and London - and in other capitals - is now taken up with climate change.
Some conservationists fear other important issues are being sidelined - a position which Ted Danson regrets.
"Let's say - cross our fingers - that we solve the problem with global warming; by the time we do that, it's quite conceivable that we've fished out our oceans," he said.
"I don't think you can compartmentalise any more, you need to handle all these problems simultaneously."
Something to think about.
