Toronto Should Not Permit the Capture of Wild Endangered Sharks for Ripley's Aquarium

Toronto Should Not Permit the Capture of Wild Endangered Sharks for Ripley's Aquarium

The wild sharks that will be displayed are the rare sand tiger sharks, listed as endangered on the IUCN ( International Union for Conservation of Nature) Red List. They are protected in the United States, Australia, and New Guinea. These species of sharks migrate by Murrells Inlet, South Carolina to their breeding grounds.

The further removal of this animal by the Ripley's team will definitely put a dent into this protected species population growth.
