With rising temperatures, industrial fishing and oceans choked by pollution, sharks are in great danger. Our attitudes and our actions will decide the fate of these ancient survivors. In this Meet the experts panel talk, students will hear from scientists on what is being done to protect our sharks from the threats they face, how the environments they live in can best be managed and preserved, and how humans can stay safe when entering their habitats.
