Scalloped hammerhead sharks

  1. 1. Scalloped Hammerhead Sharks By: Hunter Wiese
  2. 2. My Issue • Scalloped Hammerhead Sharks once thrived now they are an endangered species. We need to end this before it’s to late.
  3. 3. Why it’s My Issue• This is my issue because hammerhead sharks used to be my favorite kind of shark so I decided to learn more.
  4. 4. If It isn’t Stopped…• If this issue isn’t stopped Scalloped Hammerhead Sharks will only be something we read about not something we see.
  5. 5. About the Scalloped Hammerhead SharkHe is a carnivore, gets 13-20 feet long, and is an endangered animal.
  6. 6. What They Die For • These types of sharks are killed for mostly for their fins for shark fin soup, a delicacy in the China area.
  7. 7. What the Governments are Doing to Help• The New South Wales Australian, Costa Rica, Honduras, and United States Governments has passed legislation to protect these sharks.• While this might help the issue there are always going to be poachers.
  8. 8. How it Could be Stopped• This problem could be easily stopped by put a short season when you can hunt these sharks, instead of everyday.
  9. 9. Helpful Organization’s• The Organizations trying to stop this are the World Conservation Union & Humane Society International.
  10. 10. Worst Affected Area
  11. 11. Worse in China• This issue would be more of a problem in the China area because they eat this shark as a delicacy over here it’s just something to catch for fun.
  12. 12. Meet Chin• Chin is a fisherman in China he fishes shark but if shark hunting gets cut down or banned he doesn’t have a job, he hopes he can keep fishing. No shark fishing, no money.
  13. 13. What Chin will Lose if he Loses His Job.
  14. 14. Conclusion• Now you have seen both sides of the story and know why scalloped hammerhead sharks are endangered. I hope it is solved soon because soon there won’t be any more of these sharks, it all depends on if people are aware of the cause.
