Blake Lively is starring in the new movie, The Shallows, as a surfer fighting for her life against sharks. In reality, we pose a greater danger to sharks than they do to us.
Blake Lively is responsible for perpetuating the false belief that sharks should be hunted and not helped. According to National Geographic, for every human killed by a shark, humans kill approximately two million sharks!
Humans are overfishing the oceans, and destroying marine habitats. Shark finning is a common practice, where people cut off the fins of sharks to be sold and eaten, and then toss the living remains of the shark back in the water to die. As a result, many species of sharks are endangered. Sharks are a key part of the ocean ecosystem. Their extinction would result in a total imbalance in the ocean habitat.
We are asking Blake Lively to donate just 1% of her movie salary to Shark Conservation. Sign this petition to get Blake Lively's attention, and to make the movie, The Shallows, stand for something good.
