SHARKS! With Jean-Michel Cousteau

It’s Shark Week and we want you to know that sharks play an important part in the ocean’s overall health. Sharks are thrilling and mysterious, yet are threatened by human actions and need to be protected, rather than feared. Join our guest, Jean-Michel Cousteau, son of famed Jacques Cousteau and leader of Ocean Futures Society, to hear more about sharks and why they should be protected worldwide.

Everyday Action: Fins from up to 73 million sharks are used every year for shark fin soup, resulting in the collapse of many shark populations worldwide. Find out about shark finning and support movements and legislation that ban shark finning practices.
