There are 27 species of shark in the Bahamas. All are protected in the waters. which surround the islands. It is estimated between 25 million and 100 million sharks are kiiled for their fins each year. A rather inhumane process, with the live sharks thrown back into the water without their fins to die a slow death. Shark feeding programs operate in various locations, through the Bahamas, allowing tourists to see these amazing animals at close quarters. Initially against such feeding programmes I ahve come to realise that it is an essential part of conservation. Ensuring a living animal is worth more than a dead one , sharks in the Bahamas, sea eagles in Mull or the gorillas in Rwanda and Uganda.
