We have been made aware of a video of a beached Tiger Shark that was shot to death that was circulated on social media. It is evident from the comments in the video, as well as, the discussions that followed the social media post that more education about regulations regarding sharks in The Bahamas and shark behavior are needed. The Bahamas National Trust (BNT) would like to use this opportunity to share some critical information about sharks and the regulations governing them in The Bahamas. In 2011, sharks became fully protected in The Bahamas, turning the 243,000 square miles of the Bahamian archipelago into a shark sanctuary. It is illegal to catch or harm any shark in The Bahamas. The Bahamas is known as the Shark Diving capital of the world. It’s estimated that Sharks bring in around $114 million dollars every year in The Bahamas. People from around the world travel to The Bahamas to dive with sharks. Tiger sharks are at the top of the bucket list for many people, and places like Tiger beach in Grand Bahama are famous for their populations of these large predators. The Tiger Shark (Galeocerdo cuvier) is a large predatory shark found in tropical and temperate waters around the world. Mature Tiger sharks have virtually no predators, but like most shark species, they are heavily fished, both commercially and recreationally. Reduction in their numbers comes mainly from targeted and accidental catch in fisheries. Their reputation as a species that attacks people (which is very rarely) makes them a target of β€˜population control’ efforts in some places, a practice that is not supported, especially not in The Bahamas where they are fully protected by law. As a result, their numbers are declining, and they have been listed by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as Near- threatened. Like many sharks, these apex predators play a crucial role in maintaining the balance of marine life that humans benefit from, especially in The Bahamas. We are working aggressively, with the help of the relevant authorities to have all parties involved in the incident prosecuted. Photo by @johngarzaphoto Posted @withrepost β€’ @bahamasnationaltrust

We chatted with @jim_abernethy and are considering his non-profit for donations. Double tap if you’d like to see @wildlifevoiceinc receive donations from @shelbyreef πŸ‘πŸΌ And sign the petition mentioned below!!Posted @withrepost β€’ @jim_abernethy New evidence just published in 2018 states that the Flamingo is native to Florida and not an invasive species as presumed. By scouring through historical records and museum collections, the evidence was clear. In fact during the 1800's, there were thousands of flamingos in south florida. These beautiful large pink birds were nearly extinct do to poachers and hunters mostly for the plume industry. Fortunately they were protected and they are most definitely starting to recover! Proof that nature will recover if we just stop the killings! Infact in 2014 a flock of 147 Flamingos were seen in the Everglades! Protection does work! I'm incredibly grateful to all of you that have recently helped me win the Goliath Grouper, Land Based Shark Fishing and the Blue Heron Bridge Campaigns! Without all your help I do not believe we would have been successful! THANK YOU SO MUCH! However the "End the government sanctioned Poisoning of our lakes, rivers and aquifers...our drinking water" campaign will have the biggest impact for saving our Wildlife as well as ourselves. I have very convincing evidence the shows it is the major cause of the Red Tide massive wildlife death the last 1.5 years! So please tag your friends, share this post or just the petition that can be found in the link in my bio! Thanks so much to the 175K that already have! @jim_abernethy @sealegacy @wildlifevoiceinc #TurningTheTide #stopthepoison #lovenature #flamingo #birds #conservation #endglyphosate #floridanature #saveprotectedanimals #redtide #bluegreenalgae #saveeverglades #saveprotectedanimals #saveflorida #saveplanet #savewildlife #cleanwater #glyphosate #Bethechangetheworldneeds

Saving sharks helps save the planet! As apex predators, sharks keep the entire marine ecosystem in balance which, in turn, keeps our ecosystem in balance. The oxygen we breathe is dependent upon healthy oceans! A portion of Our profits is donated to help in this effort! Shopping you can feel good about!

We violate THEIR oceans--their homes. We take their fins, meat, cartilage, and lives. Many people don't know that sharks play an important role in our aquatic ecosystems. By mercilessly killing the sharks, we're only causing the decimation of our oceans. Keep our oceans happy, keep them clean, and #respectthelocals.
