Shark Awareness Day

July 14, 2020

14 Jul 2020 15:54:48

WE LOVE SHARKS!

Today is Shark Awareness Day! Sharks are marvels of natural selection. Over the course of 400 million years, a staggering array of 1,200 species have evolved diverse physical and behavioural adaptations that have afforded them a critical role in marine food webs and ocean health.

Our understanding of sharks and rays is ever-evolving, with new species being discovered and described all the time.

With over 1,200 diverse species, sharks and rays range from commonly misunderstood to entirely unknown. This lack of knowledge means conservation efforts are frequently lacking or insufficient.

The Port Jackson reef shark is one that beats stereotypes! They are found in the bay here in Melbourne.
