We have teamed up again to introduce a bill that would make it illegal to purposely k**l sharks in hawaii. please go to @oneoceanconservation to help sign the petition. there is a few stages that this bill will need support so please stay tuned through the next couple months. here in hawaii there is a strong cultural connection to sharks and ecologically sharks are so important to the health of our oceans. there is no need to k**l sharks for any reason. sharks are so high in mercury and other contaminants that it makes them poisonous ☠️ to be consumed by humans. multiple studies have shown that a live shark is worth way more than dead shark both economically and ecologically. logically this bill should be presented on a federal level but we can start here in hawaii #helpsavesharks#apexpredatornotmonster#oneocean#onechance#coxist@oceanramsey with sparkles photo by #juanoliphant using @aquatech_imagingsolutions@cressi1946@xcelwetsuits@north_sails@guayaki

Evolving for millions of years sharks are extremely efficient hunters and well adapted for their top position in the food chain as apex predators. sharks have a sensory mechanism called the lateral line which runs alongside the sharks body. it allows them to detect the changes in movement and current of other animals or objects (shaw,1970). their snouts are filled with jelly filled electroreceptors called ampullae of lorenzini. these allow the sharks to pick up electrical signals given off by other animals (hawai'i med j, 1981). these are just a couple of adaptations that sharks have that helps them thrive in their environment. despite all these characteristics making these animals so well adapted to their environment they are being hunted at an unsustainable rate everyday by humans. with shark populations down by 99.7% there is a dire need to change people's perceptions about sharks and (baum &myers 2004).
