Sharks are one of the most ancient animals and they have been on Earth for about 500 million of years. However, because of human activity, in the past decades they are facing the risk of extinction. Humans, in order to satisfy their greed and their uncontrollable desire, have a brutal and cruel behaviour, carrying out a sort of killing game. However, this attitude one day in the future might cause the extinction of human race and therefore it is in our best hope that this killing game will not continue with the next generations.
