why are sharks and dolphins being endangered?These threats are mainly a result of human activities.Sharks are endangered because of threats that are the result of human activities including shark finning and getting caught in fishing gear.How many are being killed?Every year humans kill over 100 million sharks.Every single year 20,000 dolphins are slaughtered.Why?Humans kill sharks because of our fear of them and to make shark fin soup. therefore, The fins only amount to 4% of a shark's body weight. This means that some 200,000 tons of shark are thrown back into the sea and discarded. humans kill dolphins to use as bait to catch sharks. The dolphin hunters make approximately $32,000 USD for each live dolphin they capture. These figures can skyrocket from $32,000 USD up to $250,000 USD for a trained captive dolphin.

people cut off shark fins and throw the sharks back to the sea

Sharks have outstanding hearing. They can hear a fish thrashing in the water from as far as 500 metres away!If a shark was put into a large swimming pool, it would be able to smell a single drop of blood in the waterWhen you are swimming with a Leopard Shark, you can flip it over and rub its belly.

Female dolphins are called cows, males are called bulls and young dolphins are called calves.Dolphins live in schools or pods of up to 12 individuals. Dolphins may live in water, but they don’t drink it? They get all the water they need from the fish they eat.Dolphins have teeth but don’t chew their dinner? They use their teeth to catch their fish then swallow them whole!You can tell a dolphin’s age by counting rings in their teeth like the rings of a trunk of a tree?

my goal: my goal was to find out information on marine life. I would say I have accomplished that goal.
