Sharks are important indicators of ocean health because they are apex predators, and the ocean is our planet’s life support system. It covers more than 70% of the Earth’s surface, provides more than half of its oxygen, and is home to an incredible diversity of life. Despite this, only 7% of the ocean is currently protected in some way. National Geographic has a long history of investigating ocean mysteries, preserving marine ecosystems and wildlife, and increasing the number of marine sanctuaries around the world.
