“Worst Shark Attack Ever” is a brand new short (21 minute) environmental documentary with an introduction by Leonardo DiCaprio and cameos by The Cure, MGMT, and superstar surfer John John Florence which explores the horrific carnage humans inflict upon sharks, called shark finning. We cruelly slaughter 100,000,000 sharks a year or 190 sharks a minute or 3 sharks every second.
By the time you are finished reading this press release, 144 sharks may have been killed and the ocean has been raped further.
At this rate, sharks could go extinct within this coming decade, and this would set off an ecological chain of events from which humans might not survive. A planet without its ocean’s apex predator is doomed. What, if anything, can be done to detour from this cataclysmic trajectory? This is a critical issue that affects everyone regardless how close you are to the ocean, although at least 60% of the world’s population lives “near the sea.” All are welcome to view it http://www.WorstSharkAttackEver.com
