Did you know that in order to produce some Sunscreen, millions of endangered sharks are being killed? Shark’s liver secrets a type of oil called squalene, which can also be found in plants.

Due to difficulty in monitoring species’ population in deep ocean, protection of endangered sharks and regulation of shark hunting by fishermen are hard to execute.
