Sharks have been on the planet for over 400 million years, long before the first dinosaur emerged on Earth. They have witnessed centuries of the world’s history, but human activity may bring all of this to an end - an entire ancient species facing an early extinction. Around 100 million sharks are killed by humans every single year - the equivalent to approximately 11,415 deaths per hour. EJF is working to protect critical shark species across West Africa and globally.
