Protect Coral Sea Sharks!

Conservation groups in Australia warn that shark populations in the Coral Sea could be wiped out if the area isn't protected. The World Wildlife Fund has released a new report saying that shark populations are vulnerable to over-fishing and other threats. The study called on the Australian Government to declare the Coral Sea a Marine Protected Area. Meanwhile, commercial fishing operators have signed a memorandum of understanding agreeing on the need to protect the marine area.
