Sharks are now safe in Virgin Islands

  • The British Virgin Islands declared that it's going to protect all shark species since their numbers are substantially decreasing. "The best way to manage their populations is to let them fulfill their ecological role as apex predators," the islands' chief of natural resources said. 

    Sharks have been in high demand and nearly 100 million are killed each year around the globe. However, it hasn't become clear as to how the region plans on policing its waters. 

    Meanwhile, Australia is going in a completely opposite direction in terms of these marine predators.
