Each and every species of shark plays a unique and important role in keeping our ocean healthy.
Sensationalized stories have left us with an exaggerated fear of sharks, but these remarkable animals warrant a closer look. Sharks are curious creatures—and with more than 400 species to discover, you’ll find that they don’t fit their frightening reputation after all.
