World On The Brink Of Sixth Great Extinction, Study Says-Species of plants & animals are becoming extinct at least 1,000 times faster than before humans arrived on scene & world is on brink of a 6th great extinction. :Whether we avoid it or not will depend on our actions." Looking at past & present rates, scientists find a lower rate in past than believed. Species now disappearing from Earth about 10% faster than believed. by biologists. May 29, 2014

Every day, more than 100,000 sharks are killed in fisheries around the globe. Many are taken solely for their fins to make shark fin soup. A U.S. law called the Shark Conservation Act prohibits shark finning. But an exception to this law for one species, the smooth dogfish, has a loophole that can lead to the undetected finning of smooth dogfish and other shark species.

The decline has been attributed to advocacy from students, conservation groups, and even former NBA star Yao Ming. Shark fin soup had been seen as a marker of social status and was traditionally served at weddings and other formal affairs. The high demand encouraged the practice of shark finning, where sharks would be caught, have their fins cut off, and then get tossed back into the ocean to die. This brought some species to the brink of extinction.

Today is world oceans day! Every year, as many as 100 million sharks die at the hands of humans. Many die in the ocean as their fins are cut off and taken away to be sold to foreign markets, where they fetch prices as high as $500 per pound. Sharks are especially vulnerable to population decreases due to their slow growth rate and low birth numbers, and overfishing and finning has left one-third of open ocean sharks at the brink of extinction. #WildlifeEarth
