Welcome to the Shark and Coral Conservation Trust (SCCT) web site.
It is devoted to the necessity for raising world-wide awareness of the need for the conservation of sharks and coral reef health. The concentration is on an active programme to increase the awareness of the problems and encourage political and diplomatic change.
Sharks and Coral Reefs
Are we witnessing a gradual process leading inexorably to the total demise of sharks on our coral reefs?
Throughout the world sharks are under such intense attack by Man that their numbers have declined to the point where certain species are now threatened with extinction.
The situation in the Red Sea is critical and some areas that were until recently renowned for their richly productive reefs, replete with fish of all sizes, including sharks, have been transformed into desolate habitats where both the coral-reef fish and their primitive predators have been wiped out.
Meanwhile the general public is still being fed the misleading old line that the seas are full of man-eating sharks and we must protect ourselves at all costs from them.
The fact is that the demise of the sharks will affect the whole eco-system and sea creatures such as oysters, clams and scallops will disappear. Please click here to read all the distressing facts.
