July 14th is a shark awareness day.
On this day, we all acknowledge the sad fact that these magnificent creatures are more threatened by people than we are by sharks. The worldwide demand for shark-fin soup, shark-tooth medallions, and a false sense of security on beaches everywhere, all combine to leave sharks persecuted and endangered, with millions of them being killed each year.
Whilst no-one is suggesting we go out and hug a Great White on this day, it's the least we can do to respect these wonderful creatures and let them be.
The Life of Sharks is a webcomic that features real facts about sharks along with witty humor, created by Christian Talbot (the writer) and Sophie Hodge (the illustrator). The talented duo is expert in putting funny words into the mouths of these fish that are perceived to be cold-hearted killers but are discovered here as cool and funny. We thought it's a great way to appreciate sharks.
