Random Shark Panel

--There is an enormous market for shark fins in many areas of the world, resulting in a barbaric practice called shark finning. Shark finning involves landing a shark on a boat, cutting off its fins while its alive, and then kicking the body back into the ocean to drown. The fins are primarily used for shark fin soup, and this practice has drastically dropped the number of many species worldwide.
