Sharks Closer to Extinction

Overfishing of sharks for their fins might lead them to extinction within a generation. Peter Knights, executive director of WildAid, said: "These animals have been here for 400 million years and they may disappear in one generation, not to provide people with basic food, but for a solely luxury item." Aside from the belief that it is good for the health, shark fin is traditionally served in soup at Chinese wedding banquets and occasions when the host wants to impress guests with expensive dishes.

The possible extinction of some shark species due to indiscriminate exploitation for reasons other than survival shows no regard for God’s love for them. We are called to be good stewards of God’s Creation, and unless some measures are taken rapidly and we stop exploiting them, we will have to deal with the consequences of our actions and failures.
