It is well known that our environment is in danger. It's perhaps less acknowledged that every species, even if it seems menacing, is important to maintaining the balance of our ecosystem. If our ecosystem is not balanced, it's only a matter of time before the negative effects are felt in the form of resource shortages, mass extinctions, and further global warming. A very important animal to the ocean ecosystem is the shark. For a long time, humans have feared sharks and have been convinced that they are a danger. While they may pose an immediate threat if you are swimming near them with a cut leg, sharks don't actually attack that many humans. On the contrary: humans kill millions of sharks every year, accidentally and intentionally.

The repercussions of our actions will lead not only to the eventual extinction of sharks, but also to the destruction of many water ecosystems. To understand why sharks are so crucial to our world, and how we can help their survival, click through this gallery.
