Why is shark protection or marine conservation important to you?

It is a matter close to my heart to show what fascinating animals sharks are. Without them, the underwater fauna and flora would be less impressive. They are crucial for a functioning ecosystem. And the preservation of these systems already starts with us, day by day.
