Welcome to another episode of our podcast, Sharks Don’t Sleep, where we talk to people making waves for the ocean! On episode 8 we’re talking to Danni Washington, the co-founder and Executive Director of Big Blue & You!
Sharks are fascinating creatures. They have been on the planet longer than trees. They were around when the dinosaurs first started roaming the Earth and survived the mass extinction that wiped them out.
With nearly 500 different species, from the hand-sized dwarf lantern shark to the bus-sized whale shark, sharks have successfully populated every corner of every ocean for over 400 million years.
But now, many shark species are at risk of extinction due to human action.
