Fighting For Sharks

Florida-based photographer and videographer Lee Burghard spent several months filming sharks and has released this campaigning video - A Fight For Survival

'Sharks are now facing a number of difficulties due to overfishing and the high demand of shark fin markets in Asia,' says Lee.  'The lack of proper fishing regulations and little public awareness about the problems surrounding sharks further contributes to all of this.'

'My hope for this video is to help change some of the public's misunderstood beliefs about sharks, and show others the truth about their behavior towards humans based on my own experience as a diver.'
