Another Shark Week has just passed by. No creature has been demonized by movies, television and disinformation more than sharks. It has resulted in countless thousands of them being monstrously massacred by inhumane poachers, hunters and greedy profiteers who brutally kill them for shark fin soup. Many shark species are gravely imperiled.

Chicago's Shedd Aquarium is very enlightened regarding this travesty. Visitors are educated and encouraged by the Shedd to embrace sharks as magnificent creatures that merit our respect for being vital predators integral for marine and aquatic ecosystems and biodiversity.
