We the undersigned ask that you not remove federal or local protections from the great white shark.
Worldwide, the great white is being hunted to extinction, often for something as frivolous and morally horrific as shark soup. The very few shark attacks that have occurred can be avoided by keeping swimmers and surfers out of known shark areas and educating the public on how not to attract sharks. Chumming, the practice of putting bloody bait into the ocean to attract fish, should be prohibited.
Please keep your great white sharks on the Endangered Species List. They are irreplaceable.
