Thanks, Lindsay!

Hi Mike,

I saw your website, Turzman, and thought you might be interested in this story about sharks from Conservation International:

Preying on Predators: Shark Tagging Data Will Guide Conservation Policy, Efforts

"Contrary to popular belief, sharks are not preying on people as much aspeople are preying on sharks. Millions are harvested every year, primarily to fill a ravenous craving for shark fin soup."
The story describes the plight of sharks endangered by the demand forshark fin soup and the efforts of scientists to learn how to bestprotect them by shark tagging. There are maps of the sharks' movements,photos, and video.
