While I’m sure they would like to, Greenpeace does not protect the sharks. Currently, 100 of 400 species of sharks are being commercially exploited. International shark trade seriously lacks control and needs a monitoring program.
Greenpeace does its part by spreading awareness on certain endangered species such as sharks. Greenpeace has the International seafood red list which is a list of fish that are commonly sold in supermarkets around the world, and which have a very high risk of being sourced from unsustainable fisheries. The porbeagle shark or shortfin mako shark is on the Greenpeace Canada Redlist. As far as this redlist is concerned, “Greenpeace is asking for urgent action on these species – if retailers and the public care about the state of our oceans, these are the species they should avoid buying.”
Greenpeace also tries to get people involved in such issues by prompting them to sign up online for different organizations. They also help out by orienting people on what steps they should take to help Greenpeace further its advocacy of protecting the environment.
