Hannes Jaenicke - Committed to Sharks

200 million sharks are killed every year by humans. 70 types of shark are already threatened with extinction, most of them are deemed lost for ever. A sad state of affairs - yet sharks still don't have many friends. They are seen as blood-thirsty and cunning killing machines. Only a few nature organisations promote the shark, it is not an emotional image to encourage donations. High time then for Hannes Jaenicke to go in search of them.
