Purposeful Predators  buttonLink

You many think that the oceans would be a safer place for all life if top predatory sharks were gone, but just the opposite is true.

Top predatory sharks play a crucial role in the oceans ecosystems. Their predatory behaviors on sick, injured, and lesser predatory animals keep ocean food webs thriving. When you remove top predatory animals, the results can be devastating.
