Many people grow up with a fear of sharks. It’s no surprise, for years popular culture and news media have sensationalized incidents of shark and human interaction, overall contributing to how the shark has become one of the most misunderstood predators of our ocean.
It’s estimated that at least 100 million sharks are killed annually, mainly for their fins to make soup, a delicacy in some countries.
So how can kids growing up today learn to appreciate and understand this awesome ocean predator?
