NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC SOCIETY

As apex predators, sharks are one of the most important indicators for ocean health, and the ocean is our planet's life support system. It covers over 70 percent of Earth’s surface, supplies over half its oxygen, and shelters an incredible diversity of life. Yet only 7 percent of the ocean is currently under some kind of protection. National Geographic has a long history of exploring the mysteries of the ocean, preserving marine ecosystems and wildlife, and expanding the number of marine sanctuaries across the globe.
