    During Shark Week, we spend time observing and appreciating the mystery and beauty of a species that rules the seas--sharks. Oceans cover over 70% of our world, and it is important to remember how our everyday actions impact the ocean on a global level. Oceana is an organization dedicated to protecting and restoring the world’s oceans on a global scale. Here are some facts from Oceana to inspire the world to protect the sea life.
