    Everything You Know about Shark Conservation Is Wrong

    Despite their fearsome reputation, sharks have more to fear from humans than we do from them. Sharks are some of the most threatened animals in the world, with rapid and alarming population declines driven by unsustainable overfishing. As public concern for their conservation grows, the debate over the best policy solutions to protect sharks has become more heated. Further complicating the issue: much of the most widely shared information about sharks and their conservation is flat-out wrong.

    Join ASU postdoctoral researcher and marine conservation biologist David Shiffman for a morning of learning ocean conservation policy and myth-busting some of the wrong information you’ve learned about how to protect sharks.
