Globally sharks are disproportionally sensationalized by media, portraying them negatively yet these apex predators play a vital role within marine ecosystems. Sharks help to maintain the delicately balanced ecosystems that keep our oceans healthy. 


Top predators help keep prey species healthier by picking off weaker individuals, leaving the stronger ones to breed and therefore improving the gene pool. Smaller and filter-feeding sharks also help keep prey species in check and many shark species are scavengers that keep the ocean cleaner and healthier. The presence of sharks is an indicator of a healthy marine ecosystem, their actions filter down the food chain to the point where coral life improves due to shark habitation.
