Leave Sharks Alone in North Carolina

shark-by-allan-lee

Target: Jonathan Jarvis, Director of the National Park Service

Goal: Shut down the North Carolina beaches where sharks and humans keep having unnecessary contact.

There have been seven shark attacks along the same area of the North Carolina coast within three weeks, yet officials have not closed down the beaches despite the obvious danger to both humans and sharks. Shark experts say the only way to avoid getting bitten by a shark is to stay out of the water, so officials need to make sure that people do this.

The shark attacks have been linked to several factors like large groups of fish swimming right offshore, lots of fisherman throwing bait into the water the sharks looking for salty water that happens to be near the beach because of low rainfall, and baby sea turtles who have recently been hatching on the beaches.

While the sharks are near the shore, humans should not be out in the water making contact with them and messing with them in their natural habitat. Not to mention that sharks get a bad rep and often become the targets of manhunts thanks to shark attacks where humans are not being careful when they should be.

Urge officials to close down the beaches in order to protect humans and allow the sharks to swim in peace until conditions are back to normal and the sharks are further from the shore.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Jonathan Jarvis,

There have been seven shark attacks along the same area of the North Carolina coast within three weeks, yet officials have not closed down the beaches despite the obvious danger to both humans and sharks. You need to make sure that people stay out of the water.

While the sharks are near the shore, humans should not be out in the water making contact with them and messing with them in their natural habitat. Not to mention that sharks get a bad rep and often become the targets of manhunts thanks to shark attacks where humans are not being careful when they should be.

I urge you to close down the beaches in order to protect humans and allow the sharks to swim in peace until conditions are back to normal

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Les requins dans l’eau, les humains sur terre.
    Voila ce que j’ai à dire.
    Nous ne sommes pas palmés que je sache alors fichons la paix au monde marin et restons à notre place sur la terre ou nous faisons déjà suffisamment de mal.
    Combien de ces beaux poissons vont encore mourir pour que ces messieurs dames puissent baigner ou surfer ?
    Car cela se terminera de cette manière – il est plus facile de supprimer les requins que d’interdire la plage aux humains car comme toujours “la race humaine d’abord”.

  2. Humans MUST move to another shore — it’s best for us all!
