Are Great White Sharks threatened?

    Great white sharks are not only threatened, they are an endangered species.  Their numbers have dropped by 90 per cent in 20 years are not only in danger from illegal fishing but also from being hit by boats and tangled up in fishing nets.  Estimates on their population are less than 3,500.  This would make the great white more endangered than wild tigers!

    The great white shark is listed as “vulnerable” by the IUCN. This signifies a high risk of extinction in the wild for the species. As we have yet to successfully keep a great white alive in captivity, the species is entirely dependent on their population in the wild.
