Three species of shark endangered

Scientists have added three species of deep sea sharks to the endangered list of animals. Some sharks are caught for the high value of their fins for human consumption or taken unintentionally in high seas during swordfish and tuna fishing.

Sarah Fowler of the World Conservation Union's (IUCN) Shark Specialist Group said, "This week, leading shark scientists from around the world highlighted the vulnerability of these species to overfishing and concluded that several species are now threatened with extinction on a global scale."

Although overfishing is one of the most destructive human activities, it largely goes underestimated by most people. At the rate aquatic animals are caught and killed for human consumption, many more of God’s animals will forever disappear from rivers and oceans, while others will continue to be pushed to the verge of extinction. How sad it is that we are destroying God’s Creation!
