Why is shark protection or marine conservation important to you?

An ocean without sharks is not an ocean, but only water, and water alone is not enough to preserve our planet as we are still able to experience it today! Shark conservation is therefore marine conservation, climate protection and essential for the survival of our planet ... and all of humanity.
