Unbelievable and such an outstanding tie into Social Studies 20 and Biology 20.

What can the world learn from sharks?
What can the world learn about human rights… from sharks?
What can we learn about violence and non violence… from sharks?
Sharks were here before the dinosaur lived… One of the oldest living things on earth.

ALOT!

2/3rds of the worlds surface is water.
80 percent of life on earth lives in the ocean.
How do we treat that water? We pollute it.
How do we treat that life (mammals/fish)? We over fish and disrupt patterns, breeding grounds and beyond.

Students… keep watching, enjoying Stewarts amazing work and thinking about what we as humans are doing to one another, our environment and other living things.
One of you asked about ‘law free waters’ or ‘international waters’.
